A student from Jamia Millia Islamia University was injured in a firing reported from Delhi's Jamia on Thursday, January 30, during the protests against the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
The incident took place when protesters, including students of Jamia Millia Islamia, were marching towards Rajghat to protest against CAA and National Register of Citizens (NRC).
The person who opened fire reportedly shouted pro-Delhi Police and anti-Jamia slogans before shooting. He also asked 'who wants azadi' before opening fire at the protest rally. "Kisko chahiye azadi? Main dunga azadi (Who wants freedom? I will give freedom)," he reportedly shouted.
