Antinational activist and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Umar Khalid was allegedly shot at by a man at the Constitution Club in New Delhi on Monday, but he escaped unhurt, police said.
Khalid had come to attend an event titled ‘Khauff Se Azaadi’, organised by an organisation named ‘United Against Hate.’
What he told:
“I was having tea with some friends at the stall right outside Constitution Club when a hefty man came from behind and grabbed my neck with his arms. I noticed there was a gun in his hand so I tried to hold his hand, I was scared as he has was trying to shoot me. He overpowered me and threw me to the ground. He then hit me. When my friends tried to fight him back, he threw the gun and ran away. I heard a shot in the distance. The gun was definitely fired,” Khalid told
