New Delhi: Delhi Police today announced a
cash reward of Rs 25,000 to a rickshaw-puller who had tried to
give a chase to the two motorbike-borne gunmen who fired at
foreign tourists outside Jama Masjid on Sunday last.

Displaying courage, rickshaw puller Salim Ahmed, who
was ferrying some passengers, had thrown stones at the gunmen
and even chased them in a bid to stop the duo from escaping.

"We have decided to give a cash award of Rs 25,000 to
Salim," said a Delhi Police official.

Two motorcycle-borne attackers on Sunday had shot and
injured two Taiwanese nationals outside the historic mosque
which was followed by an explosion in a car in the same area.
