According to a witness, an unidentified man opened fire injuring a student of Jamia Millia Islamia. The man fired with a country made pistol had allegedly raised some religious slogan before opening fire at the crowd.
“He shouted ‘lo ye lo azadi’ and opposed our march,” said a protester.
Despite heavy presence of police in the area, the man opened fire at the protesters injuring a journalism student, which was identified as Shadab. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The identity of the shooter has not been made public yet.
In a video, the man, wearing a black jacket and a pair of white trousers, can be seen walking on a heavily-guarded road, waving a gun as he shouts “Yeh lo aazadi (here’s your freedom)” at the protesters. He stood meters away from dozens of policemen deployed outside the university, where protesters had gathered for a march.
