Latest News Updates for Anti-CAA Protest
❒ Jamia Firing Incidents
The third incident of gunshot was heard on Sunday (02.02.2020) night. It was fired outside the Jamia Millia Islamia University in south Delhi on Sunday night. This was the third such incident in four days against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) protest in the capital.
Though no evidence has been found for the gunshot at the gate 5 of Jamia and also there was no phone call from the Jamia protesters, very late police came to know about it. It is claimed by the protesters that there were two suspects, one of them wearing a red jacket, came on a scooter and opened fire outside Gate No. 5, said by the the Jamia Coordination Committee who was also participating in the protest against the amended citizenship law but no one was injured.
The police also said some students told them that a shot was fired at the university gate, which is just 2 km away from Shaheen Bagh, where protesters are already sitting in a tent on the road for nearly two months against the CAA.
The Statements of the protesters have been recorded and on the same basis an FIR had been registered. A police squad will be investigating the entire scenario, it will collect CCTV footage from Gate No.5 and 7, and then the police will speak something on the late night incident at Jamia. As soon as the crux of the incident is investigated, it will be brought into limelight, said by senior police officer Jagdish Yadav.
People in small numbers had gathered around the university gates at night in protest against the CAA. In mobile videos tweeted by people at the university gate, people were seen running under the dim glow of streetlights after hearing the alleged gunshot.
Police officers went to the shooting site at Jamia Nagar and searched the area. No empty bullet shells were found there. Also, there were different descriptions about the vehicle in which the alleged miscreants came. Some said it was a scooter, others said it was a four-wheeler. Many people, including students, had gathered outside the police station. Senior police officer Kumar Gyanesh said that they will be asked to give a complaint for which the investigation will be done.
Prior to this the first gun firing was done on Friday (31.01.2020) at protesters of Jamia Millia University by Gopal as he was dead tired of the anti protest and said, he will give them Azadi.
❒ Shaheen Bagh Firing Incident
On Saturday (01.02.2020), three days after a teen shooter fired at protesters at Jamia Millia University, another man did air firing standing near police barricades at Shaheen Bagh. He was arrested by the police.
He was also heard saying: “Humare desh mein sirf Hinduon ki chalegi aur kisi ki nahi“. He had purportedly come to the area in an auto to disperse the crowd of Shaheen Bagh.
❒ Shaheen Bagh Shoot Out
With the frequent incidents of shootings, the political parties are blaming their opponents. It is said that these incidents have taken shape after the controversial slogans of “Goli Maaro Sa***n Ko” were said last week at a Delhi campaign rally of Anurag Thakur, the Union Minister of State for Finance.
Mr Thakur was banned from campaigning in Delhi for three days for this. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal slammed the Home Minister Amit Shah for this as he got the chance to speak now. He had tweeted “What have you done to our Delhi, Amit Shah ji?”
अमित शाह जी, ये आपने क्या हाल बना रखा है हमारी दिल्ली का। दिनदहाड़े गोलियां चल रहीं है। कानून व्यवस्था की खुलेआम धज्जियां उड़ाई जा रही है। चुनाव आते जाते रहेंगे, राजनीति भी चलती रहेगी, लेकिन दिल्ली के लोगों की ख़ातिर, कृपया कानून व्यवस्था ठीक करने पर ध्यान दीजिए। https://t.co/sMg2BedUsJ— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) February 1, 2020
Bullets are being fired in broad daylight… Law and order is being criticised constantly. Elections will come and go, politics will keep happening, but for the sake of the people of Delhi, please focus on fixing law and order.
Though, this Shaheen bagh protest was initiated and supported by AAP party and Congress party but still blaming BJP for it. Both these parties always support anti nation activities. When all the things were made clear regarding CAA, NRC and NPR, then for what protest is going on it is beyond understanding. It appears they all are following the footsteps of Sharjeel Imam the master mind of anti national activities.
