Another Firing Incident Reported Near Jamia Millia Islamia In Delhi Amid Anti-CAA Protests

Another firing incident was reported at Jamia Millia Islamia in Delhi Sunday night, three days after a terrorist shot at student protesters of the University on Thursday.

A statement issued by the Jamia Coordination Committee (JCC), a group comprising students and alumni of the university formed to protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), said the attackers were on a red scooter.

One of the miscreants was wearing a red jacket, the statement said. No one is reported to have injured in the attack.

On Saturday, another terrorist fired shots standing near police barricades put up at Shaheen Bagh, where a sit-in protest against CAA & NRC has been taking place for over a month.

According to eyewitnesses, the man, who identified himself as Kapil Gujjar, opened fire close to the police barricades, nearly 250 metres behind the stage. He was overpowered by police personnel and taken into custody. He shouted Iss desh mein kisi ki nahin chalegi, sirf Hinduon ki chalegi (In this country, no one but Hindus can have their say),” and fired two rounds.
