The medical report of Mohammad Tamim the Jamia Milia Islamia student who was admitted to Holy Family Hospital says in the history section that he received a gunshot injury.

However, Delhi Police said that it can’t be either a gun pellet or even a rubber bullet. They have said that it could be shrapnel.

The hospital has sent the foreign object which the victim Mohammad Tamim claimed was a bullet injury for forensic test.

Tamin said that he was not even part of the protest at Jamia. He was just at the wrong place at the wrong time, “There were police officers who saw me going, they didn’t ask anything, took a straight shot at my leg.

“I wasn’t even protesting. I was passing by from the Okhla area and was on a bike when suddenly police started lathicharging students,” he said. Tamim says, he has a family. “I am shocked. I have a family. Delhi Police didn’t think about anything. Had I died, will they take responsibility for my family? (sic)” Tamin asked.

Delhi Joint Police Commissioner has denied they even own a rubber bullet or the police fired a gunshot

Joint Commissioner of Police Devesh Srivastav has said that Delhi Police does not even own a rubber bullet gun. “We have not shot anyone and we do not have rubber bullet,” he reportedly said.

The father of one of the students, Sohaib Khan (23), said his son was not part of the protest. He was just passing by when he was hit by a “pellet” on the toe.

“He underwent surgery last night and was shifted to a ward,” his father, Mohammad Arshad, said.

Sohaib is a fourth-year BTech student at Jamia Hamdard, his father said.

Another student, Ajaz (22), who also suffered gunshot injury on the chest apparently at the protest site, was also undergoing treatment at the Centre-run hospital.

The senior police officer, who spoke to the agency, said that injuries were possibly caused by the sharp end of tear gas shells.
