New Delhi/IBNS: One student was injured after a man carrying a gun opened fire at an anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) protests outside Delhi's Jamia Millia University on Thursday, media reports said.

In a dramatic scene which took place just before 2 pm, a man was seen brandishing his gun and pointing towards the protestors while walking backside.

In a video which shows the entire scene, the man was heard saying, "Yeh lo azaadi. Delhi Police zindabaad. Hindustan zindabaad."

The injured student was rushed to a hospital.

The shooter, identified as Rambhakt Gopal from his Facebook profile, has been arrested.

Gopal was brandishing his gun openly, and his action was preplanned, claimed media reports.

The attacker's Facebook profile shows he was live on the social networking site before firing at the protestors. 

The incident took place while the students were marching towards Rajghat.

Following the incident, police barricaded the entire spot and stopped the march.

However, the protestors said they won't budge down as they will carry on with the march and form a human chain at India Gate at 5 pm instead of previously fixed time 3:30 pm.
