While speaking to ANI in the national capital on January 30, the Vice Chancellor of Jamia Millia Islamia University spoke on firing in the Jamia area. She said, “It is really unfortunate that during this entire time, a contingent of police stood there and just watched everything happen.” “I am proud that my students handled the situation very calmly,” Jamia VC added. A man brandished a country-made pistol and opened fire, injuring a student protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) on January 30. The firing took place despite heavy police presence in the area and the man was later overpowered by protesters. The students were heading from Jamia to Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial Rajghat.
