Jamia student shot inside holy family hospital


A student from Jamia Millia Islamia was shot at by another student from the same university inside Holy Family Hospital in Jamia Nagar late on Thursday. Police said that the shooting was a spillover of a fight that began inside the university library which was reported the same night.

26-year-old Noman Chaudhary, a student and resident of Meerut district in Uttar Pradesh, suffered a blunt injury on his head after a fight broke out between two groups of students in the Jamia library.

He was then taken to Holy Family Hospital for treatment where his friend, Nauman Ali came to visit him.

Following this, Zalal, a student of the second group who is from Mewat, Haryana arrived at the hospital accompanied by his friends and fired at Nauman Ali outside the Emergency ward. Nauman Ali thus sustained a superficial injury on the scalp, police said.

"There was a clash between two groups in the locality, and some injured persons were brought to the hospital Emergency. One shot was fired in the Emergency between the clashing groups. No bystanders, other patients or hospital staff were injured. The situation was immediately brought under control," the hospital said in a statement.
