On Friday, two bike-borne assailants fired shots in the air, roughly 400 metres from an anti-CAA protest in Delhi’s Jafrabad area. Reportedly, no individual had been harmed during the Jafrabad shooting. Several protestors alleged it to be an attempt to intimidate them.

An Anti-CAA protestor by the name of Nihal Ashraf alleged that two men fired three rounds in the air and escaped. “They were on a scooter without a number plate, unlike the Jamia incident in which the vehicle used by those who fired had a number plate. They two men fired after moving a few metres ahead of our protest site,” he claimed.

People had been protesting for close to a month in Jafrabad. When the Jafrabad shooting took place, the police immediately rushed to the scene. The police have claimed that the incident was unrelated to the Anti-CAA protests and rather a case of personal enmity.
