The man known for firing shots within the air amid Anti CAA-NRC protests at Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh locality in February, Kapil Gujjar, joined the Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday, 30 December, Times Now reported. He became a member of the ruling party in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad city.

A video of the incident, that happened on 1 February 2020, showed Gujjar screaming, “In our country, only Hindus will prevail, nobody else.” consistent with witnesses, he fired two or 3 times while standing besides the police, reported.

Kapil’s family had said, after the shooting incident,that it had been probably the inconvenience caused thanks to blockage of roads by the protests at Shaheen Bagh that ticked him off, PTI reported.

What had Happened?

The man in question had fired two rounds within the air at Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh area – the epicentre of anti-CAA protests – on Saturday, 1 February. Taken into custody by the police following the incident, he reportedly chanted ‘Jai Shri Ram.’

Hours after the Delhi Police claimed that Gujjar was (then) a member of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the party had asked during a Twitter post how BJP’s then Delhi president Manoj Tiwari had claimed to understand there was a report about this “at 9 am, 11 hours before the official statement by Crime Branch, Delhi Police.”
