JNU Student Leader Umar Khalid Attacked By Unidentified Men in Delhi

New Delhi: In another shocker, JNU student leader Umar Khalid was attacked by unidentified men at the Constitution Club of India near Parliament today. The men had fired gunshots at Khalid, who escaped unscathed.

The Delhi Police has confirmed that Umar Khalid was attacked from behind at a tea stall outside the Constitution Club of India, while he was having tea along with his associates.

Khalid has claimed that he was attacked, pounced and pushed by a man who later tried to fire on him but failed as people started chasing him. Seeing this, the attacker fired in the air and fled the spot. The police have initiated a probe and are trying to verify Khalid’s claims.

Umar Khalid was at the Constitution club to attend at event named ‘Khauff se Azaadi’ organised by ‘United Against Hate’. Witnesses present at the spot have claimed that two shots were fired when Khalid was at the entrance of the club.

Addressing mediapersons after the assault, Khalid stated that this was an attempt to silence those who question the government’s actions and policy. He termed the assault on him as somewhat akin to the attack on Gauri Lankesh and said such attacks aim to eliminate the voice of truth and terrorise people. He further added that there is an atmosphere of fear in the country and anybody who speaks against the government is labelled as anti-national, threatened and sometimes killed.

Meanwhile, the Police have seized the weapon left by the assailant while fleeing. Investigation has been initiated to nab the attackers.
