A gunshot was fired outside the Jamia Millia Islamia University by two unidentified persons claimed students on Sunday night, February 2. No injuries have been reported so far, sources said.

"Two unidentified persons resorted to firing outside the University gate no. 5. They came on a red coloured Scooty from Shaheen Bagh side," said Suyash Tripathi, a Law student at Jamia Millia Islamia.

In 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 said the attackers were on a red motorcycle having vehicle no. 1532 or 1534. One of the miscreants was wearing a red jacket, the statement said.

However, there is no confirmation from the police as of now.  A senior police official said a case of attempt to murder under relevant sections of the IPC and the Arms Act was registered in connection with the incident and an investigation is underway.
