New Delhi: A man fired in Shaheen Bagh area on Saturday evening and was immediately arrested by the Delhi police.
No one was injured in the firing.
The incident comes just two days after a juvenile, brandishing a gun, shot a protestor outside Jamia Milia Islamia University, near Shaheen Bagh.
According to eyewitnesses, the man was seen shouting communal slurs at the protestors. As he fired in air, he was immediately overpowered, police claimed.
The man has been identified as Kapil Gujjar, a resident of Dallupura village in East Delhi. Currently the cops are interrogating him to know his association with any fringe group.
Following the incident, the security arrangement in and around the area has been tightened.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal lambasted Union Home Minister Amit Shah for law and order situation in Delhi.
“Amit Shah ji, what have you done to our Delhi. Bullets are being fired in broad daylight. The law and order situation has been completely blown off. Elections will keep coming, politics will also continue, but for the sake of the people of Delhi, please pay attention to correct law and order”, Mr Kejriwal said in a tweet.
In the aftermath of the incident, the official twitter handle of the Shaheen Bagh protests tweeted that these are the signs of frustration. “They are getting frustrated by our will, by our unity. People will eventually understand Hindutva is a form of terrorism. Shaheen Bagh has revived Gandhi once again!This hate will loose, compassion shall triump. We shall win!”, they said in the tweet.
Shaheen Bagh has been a focal point of Citizenship (Amendment)Act protests, triggered across the country. People from all walks of life, especially from the minority community, are staging protest there since the government enacted the law that grants citizenship to non-Muslims persecuted in neighbouring Muslim countries.
