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.
