The huge manhunt involved around 1,000 cops, detectives and other officers scouring through 7,200 hours of CCTV footage and over 2,000 public tip-offs.

A special operations task force swooped on a council-owned house reportedly rented by Masharipov’s friend on Monday night.

He reportedly resisted arrest and was detained in front of his four-year-old son.

The alleged fanatic, said to be 34-years-old, underwent medical checks before being taken to a police headquarters for questioning.
