How did the students of Jamia were shot if there was no firing?
On Sunday, controversy erupted over whether the Delhi Police opened fire on the protesters at Delhi's Jamia Millia Islamia University. The university and its neighborhood in southeastern Delhi were the scenes of a violent protest between police and protesters, protesting against the new Citizenship Amendment Act that injured dozens of students and police. The medical superintendent of Delhi's government hospital, Safdarjung Hospital, told that two Jamia protesters were shot and wounded, with police directly claiming that they were not firing at the protesters. Both are said to be out of danger. A news channel trace one of them, 22-year-old Azaz, a BA student of Jamia University, admitted to a general ward at the hospital. Two Delhi Police members were deputed in the ward to keep an eye on the visitors. Ajaz's family confirmed that he was shot in the chest on Sunday evening. He said he had no role in the protests. The police cycled through several explanations for the injuries, ultimately settling on the claim that these were due to splash injuries from tear-gas shells. Police admitted the name of the other injured person to 23-year-old Shoaib Khan in Safdarjung, who said he had "pellets injury (sic)" in his leg. The police later clarified that they were meant to be hurt by a tear gas splash when the bullet fired. After being shot, a cellphone video of Ajaz was filmed momentarily, which showed no tear gas in the vicinity.
