Shaheen Bagh Protests

New Delhi, Jan 28: The Congress has alleged that the man who brandished pistol at the Shaheen Bagh protest site on Tuesday is a Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) worker and he did it on behest of his party.

When IANS traced the man in the video, named Haji Lukman, a resident of Shaheen Bagh, he said he had gone there with some other residents of the area and asked the protestors to leave one side of road for convenience of people. When they didn’t respond, I took out my licensed pistol in agitation, he added.

On why he carried his pistol, the Haji said, “It’s my fault. I forgot to deposit it with the authorities as per the election norm.”

Depositing a weapon during elections is mandatory. The non-deposit also raises question on the efficacy of the local police.

While Lukman said he was not a AAP worker, Okhla Congress head Parvez Alam Khan said the Haji was the right hand man of local MLA Amanatullah. The police should take action against him for trying to create disturbance during a peaceful protest, Khan added.

It was chaos at the Shaheen Bagh protest site earlier during the day when protesters overpowered a man with the firearm. It’s seen in the video of the incident that went viral on social media.

The man initially kept the pistol hidden as he shouted at protestors to leave the site. But as the protestors started pushing him out of the site, he pulled his shirt up and flashed the firearm.

For a brief the protestors were terror-struck, but they soon recovered their senses and overpowered the man and made him to leave the venue, instead of handing him to the police. They have also not filed any complaints against him.

Protestors stood strong and continued their sit-in on Monday night and Tuesday morning despite rain. Shaheen Bagh protest is continuing for over 40 days now.

Acid Attack

Unnao, Jan 28 : A young man sustained burn injuries when a 20-year-old woman threw acid on him in Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday morning as he had allegedly been stalking her.

Rohit Yadav, 24, got burn injuries on his nape, back, chest and left shoulder during the acid attack in Godamau village under jurisdiction of Morawan police station.

Police took him to an area hospital, from where he was shifted to Lucknow for further treatment.

Morawan police station officer Rajendra Rajawat said: “Prima facie, it is a case of one-sided love as the woman was not reciprocating his overtures. The man was reportedly stalking her.”

The officer said that the man had not yet lodged a complaint, adding that the woman would be arrested if he lodged a complaint.

According to reports, Rohit was attacked at a dairy where he works as a cleaner. The woman was, apparently, hiding in the dairy since morning and threw acid as soon as Rohit entered the premises.

More than 40 cases of acid attacks, mostly on women, have been reported in Uttar Pradesh in 2018, according to the National Crime Records Bureau (NRCB) report released in January.

The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court had, earlier this month, sought a reply from the central and state governments on a plea pertaining to compliance of the directions issued by the Supreme Court to regulate the sale and distribution of acid.

The case is listed for hearing on January 31.
