New Delhi [India], Feb 3 (ANI): People including some students of Jamia Millia Islamia University gathered outside the Jamia Nagar police station following a firing incident near gate number five of the university on Sunday night.

The students returned from the Jamia Nagar police station after their complaint was registered.

People also gathered in protest outside the university following the firing by two scooty-borne unidentified people. The protestors chanted slogans against Delhi Police.

According to Jamia Coordination Committee, the firing was done by two unidentified persons. One of them was wearing a red-coloured jacket and driving a red colour scooty.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

This is the third firing incident in the national capital in the last few days.

The juvenile has been sent to 14-day protective custody by the Juvenile Justice Board.
