New Delhi: The Delhi Police has released a CCTV grab of the suspect who fired at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Umar Khalid on Monday. The image was caught on the camera installed at Vitthalbhai Patel Road.
Meanwhile, hours after he was attacked by an unidentified gunman outside Constitution Club, Khalid had asked Delhi Police to provide him protection.
“I was attacked right before my program was scheduled to start at the Constitution Club. I was having tea opposite the venue when a man attacked me from behind. He pushed me to the ground and aimed his gun at me. I somehow pushed him away, after which a gunshot was fired, but I escaped. I have received threats in the past too, but this was the first time there was an assassination attempt. I have sought police protection now,” Khalid said.
Khalid had a narrow escape after an unidentified man opened fire on him outside Constitution Club of India.
The student cum activist was scheduled to speak at an event titled - 'Towards a Freedom Without Fear' organised by United Against Hate Initiative.
