Shooter Shaheen Bagh joined the AAP in 2019: Delhi Police | India News

NEW DELHI: The Delhi Police criminal branch said Tuesday that the man who opened fire at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi last week is a member of the Aam Aadmi Party, sources from the ANI news agency quoted sources as saying.

In undated images recovered from his mobile phone, Kapil Gurjar, 25, can be seen joining the AAP along with his father in the presence of senior leaders such as Atishi and Sanjay Singh.

DCP (Crime) Rajesh Deo told reporters that during the interrogation, Gurjar revealed that he took the main membership of AAP in 2019.

“The images of Gurjar joining AAP in the presence of senior leaders were recovered from his mobile phone,” Deo said.

Angry at the ongoing turmoil against the citizenship law in Shaheen Bagh, Gurjar had arrived last week at the protest site and opened fire with a gun made in the countryside, which caused chaos in the area.

In a video that went viral, you could see Gurjar singing ‘Jai Shree Ram’ and saying: “Hamare desh me aur kisi ki nahi chalegi, sirf Hindu ki chalegi (only the Hindus will have a voice in our country, no one else). ”
