JNU student leader Umar Khalid was allegedly shot at by an unidentified man at the Constitution Club in New Delhi on Monday but he escaped unhurt, police said.

Witnesses claimed that two shots were fired when Khalid was at the entrance of the club.

Khalid was at the venue to attend an event titled ‘Khauff Se Azaadi’, organised by an organisation named ‘United Against Hate’.

Saifi, who was accompanying Khalid, said, “We had gone to have tea when three people came towards us. One of them got hold of Khalid which he resisted. There was a melee as a gunshot was heard. But Khalid was not injured. While the accused were fleeing, they fired one more shot” 

Later Khalid said, “There is an atmosphere of fear in the country and anybody who speaks against the government is threatened.” 

Police are on the spot and are investigating the matter. They have seized the weapon that was dropped by the accused while fleeing.
