NEW DELHI – In the presence of police forces, a man named Gopal opened fire at the students of Jamia Millia Islamia near the campus when they were marching to Rajghat against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act  in New Delhi on Thursday, injuring one student. The student, who was shot in the hand, has been rushed to Holy Family hospital, in the vicinity.

In the video, the man brandishing the gun can be heard saying, “Yeh lo azaadi…Hindustan zindabad…Delhi Police zindabad.” Delhi Police personnel were present when the shooting took place. The man, identified as Gopal, has been detained.

The students of Jamia were to hold a march to Rajghat on the 72nd death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

The shooting comes days after Union Minister Anurag Thakur at a BJP rally instigated those present in the crowd to chant ‘Goli maro saalon ko.’ Thakur, addressing an election rally Monday, repeatedly chanted “Desh ke gaddaron ko” and had people responding with “goli maaro saalon ko”.  Another BJP MP Pravesh Verma also made hate speeches against the protesters.
