Dog whistle politics has now taken to the Godse's gunshot politics in Delhi where third firing incident has been reported in last three days.

Delhi Police have registered a case after two unidentified persons allegedly opened fire outside Jamia Millia Islamia on Sunday night, police said.

In a statement issued by the Jamia Coordination Committee (JCC), a group comprising students and alumni of the university formed to protest against the CAA, said the attackers were on a red motorcycle.

One of the miscreants was wearing a red jacket, the statement said.

A senior police official said a case of attempt to murder under relevant sections of the IPC....

.... and the Arms Act was registered in connection with the incident and an investigation is underway.

On Thursday, a minor fired at anti-CAA protesters preparing to march from Jamia towards the Rajghat, injuring a student.

Two days later, a 25-year-old fired two rounds in air at Shaheen Bagh, where a protest against the new citizenship law has been going on.

No one was hurt in the incident."Firing has taken place at Gate No. 5 of Jamia Millia Islamia ... by two unidentified persons.

As per report, one of them was wearing a red jacket and driving a red scooter having vehicle no. 1532 or 1534," the statement said.

Asim Mohammed Khan, a former Congress MLA from Okhla, said the incident occurred around 11.30 pm.


"We heard the gunshot. That is when we stepped out to see and the two men left on a scooter," a student said.

"We have taken down the vehicle number and called police," he added.

All these firing incidents have been witnessed after the provocative speech by BJP minister Anurag Thakur ," desh ke gaddaron ko,goli maaro ####ko".

Many other BJP leaders including Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh and Yogi Adityanath continue to deliver hate speech during election campaign in Delhi.

Congress leaders including Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi have reacted over the hate rants by BJP leaders.
