Two days after a youth opened fire on the anti-CAA protesters here, a similar incident happened on Saturday as a man fired bullets in the air in Shaheen Bagh area -- a key site of the protests. The police have detained the man.

Following the incident, there was panic and anger in the area where an anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) protest has been underway for over a month.

A police officer present at the spot said "three bullets were fired in the air. The man has been identified as Kapil, a resident of Dullupura village."

The man has been taken away by the police amid tight security to an unknown place where he is being questioned, a police officer told IANS.

On Thursday, a youth opened fire with a country-made .315 bore pistol when the Jamia students were to start their march from Jamia Millia Islamia to Rajghat. It left a journalism student, Shadab, with injuries on his arm.
