The Kolkata Police on Thursday issued an arrest warrant against Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mohammad Sohrab, father of Sambia Sohrab -- the prime accused in the hit-and-run death of an Indian Air Force corporal during a Republic Day rehearsal recently.

A Kolkata court had on Tuesday sent Shahnawaz Khan alias Sanu and Johnny, the accused in the IAF officer hit-and-run case, to 12-days of police custody.

Sanu and Johnny were eyewitnesses in the death of IAF officer corporal Abhimanyu Gaud.

The police had earlier arrested Sambia Sohrab, who was sent to police custody for 14 days on Wednesday after being booked under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code.
