Blaming the Delhi police of being in collaboration with the shooter the Association in its press release said: “The increasing intensity of terrorism and police’s collaboration with them has to be immediately recognised as Hindutva terrorism. The time is such that a pro-CAA terrorist can open fire unchallenged in front to hundreds of policemen, while peaceful anti-CAA and NRC protests are broken with lathis and arrests”.

Delhi Police investigating the case have refuted the allegations of police inaction when a man opened fire at protestors near Jamia Millia University today. DCP Chinmay Biswal, speaking to the media said that police were deployed at the usual areas in and around the university and the protestors were asked not to take out this march.
