Firing at CAA NRC Protesters

New Delhi: A man on Thursday opened fire at people protesting against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC) near Jamia Millia Islamia in Jamia Nagar, New Delhi.

The man opened fire at the peaceful protesters shouting "yeh lo Azaadi". The unidentified man was later taken into custody by the police.

In a video, the man, wearing a black jacket and a pair of white trousers, can be seen walking on a road, waving a gun as he shouts "Yeh lo aazadi (here's your freedom)" at the protesters.

Television reports said one student is injured in the firing and was seen being taken away, as he walked with his hands in blood.

The incident came a day after an armed man was held at Shaheen Bagh where women of all faiths and religions are protesting 24x7 against CAA-NRC-NPR since last 47 days.

Union Minister and BJP MP Anurag Thakur had two days ago led slogans "Desh ke gaddaro ko... goli maro sa**o ko", while addressing a rally in Delhi.

Protests are being held against the CAA, NRC and NPR at number of places in India and abroad since December 12 when Modi government enacted CAA - which grants citizenship to persecuted Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists and Christians and others except Muslims, from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
