New Delhi: An Indian bar owner helped catch 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami, the man who was accused in the New York and New Jersey bombings in which 29 people were wounded.

Harinder Bains, a bar owner in Linden found Ahmad Khan Rahami sleeping near his bar on Monday.

Bains said he thought it was some drunken guy resting in the doorway of his bar, but then he recognised Rahami and called the police.

“I’m just a regular citizen doing what every citizen should do. Cops are the real heroes, law enforcement is the real heroes,” Bains said.

When the police reached the spot, Rahami pulled out a handgun and opened fire, shooting an officer in the chest.

He tried to escape but the chase ended when he was shot multiple times.

He was taken to hospital for surgery.

Indian-American attorney Ravi Batra told PTI that Bains “dared to honour his Oath of Citizenship to protect & defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic -and it’s turns out that the Chelsea Pressure Cooker Bomber suspect, a naturalised citizen, is caught by another immigrant, an Indian-American Hero-Sikh.”
