Faizan allegedly shot by Hindutva CAA supporters

25 Feb 2020 Delhi: Six hours after a 14-year-old Muslim boy was allegedly shot at by Hindutva supporters of the Citizenship Amendment Act in the Kardam Puri locality of Shahdara, no ambulance had reached him. The Wire‘s reporters found him slumped on his stomach, with locals attempting to offer relief with preliminary care. An ambulance eventually did reach the boy at around 5 pm. He has been admitted to a hospital. The boy, identified as Faizan, had not been a part of protests or clashes but had been in the area to drop off some items to an acquaintance. Witnesses at the scene said it was supporters of the CAA who had come in from the Yamuna Vihar area, that lies to the immediate west of Kardam Puri, who shot Faizan. The boy, whose mother passed away recently and whose father works in Rampur, lives with his grandmother. Speaking to The Wire, the grandmother said she was extremely scared under the current scenario and had strongly told Faizan not to venture out.
