Firing At Shaheen Bagh, Delhi’s Second In 3 Days At An Anti-CAA Protest

Shooter shouts”Jai Sri Ram”,”Humare desh mein sirf Hinduon ki chalegi aur kisi ki nahi”

New Delhi: A man fired shots today at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi, the heart of protests against the citizenship law CAA, just three days after a teen shooter fired at protesters at nearby Jamia Millia University. This is the second daylight shooting in which the police caught the man only after the shots were fired.
The man allegedly shouted “Jai Sri Ram” as he fired shots standing near police barricades put up at the south Delhi locality where hundreds of women and children have sat on the road in protest for more than a month. He was caught by the police. No one was injured.
The shooter was also heard saying: “Humare desh mein sirf Hinduon ki chalegi aur kisi ki nahi (in our country only Hindus will prevail).” He had allegedly come to the area in an auto.
A witness said the man fired two-three times, standing right next to the police, not at the spot of the protest but close enough to a large crowd of unarmed men, women and children.
“We suddenly heard gunshots. This person was shouting Jai Shri Ram. He had a semi-automatic pistol and he fired two rounds. The police were standing just behind him,” said the witness, a volunteer at the protest.
“When his gun jammed, he ran. He tried to fire again, then tossed the gun into the bushes and tried to escape. Some of us and the police caught him, the police dragged him away,” he added. Protesters questioned whether the police were more focused on keeping an eye on them rather than tackling crimes like this.
Police officer Chinmay Biswal said the man had fired shots in the air. “The man had resorted to aerial firing. Police immediately overpowered and caught him,” he said.
Kashmir highway open for one way traffic from Srinagar to Jammu today

Srinagar/ Feb,1: The Srinagar-Jammu highway would remain open for one way traffic from Srinagar to Jammu today as one way traffic was on Saturday allowed from Jammu to Srinagar.
A senior traffic police official told Kashmir Horizon over phone “ one way traffic would be allowed from Srinagar to Jammu on Kashmir highway today as one way traffic was allowed from Jammu to Srinagar on Saturday”. Though there is no end to frequent disruption of traffic movement triggered by frequent snowing and fast track excavation work on Banihal-Ramban track this winter but dry weather forest for about a week from now has generated hopes of smooth traffic movement on the highway in coming days.
