NEW DELHI: Gunja Kapoor, a woman who entered Shaheen Bagh protest area in a burqa was heckled by protestors on Wednesday.

Protestors grew suspicious after she asked 'too many questions.’ On frisking her it was found that she was carrying a camera. As the crowd started heckling her she was carried away from the protest venue by the police.

Kapoor on her twitter account calls herself an “ Analyst, amateur writer…”

In her pinned tweet she thanks PM Modi for following her.

“I couldn't have asked for a happier New Year gift! Thanks a ton PM @narendramodi ji for this acknowledgement. We are your foot soldiers in building India as the Vishwa Guru. Really means a lot,” the tweet reads.

Just a few days ago, Kapil Gujjar, a resident of Dallupura village in east Delhi, opened fire in Shaheen Bagh area.

Before this incident, another man with a pistol entered the venue of Shaheen Bagh protests in Delhi. The man reportedly threatened the gathering and asked the protestors to vacate the area. The man with the pistol allegedly shouted, “clear the road or people will die.”

A few days ago, Deepak Chaurasia, consulting editor of News Nation TV has put up a video that shows him getting pushed and shoved by some men at Shaheen Bagh in New Delhi.

Chaurasia who was removed from the venue, was there to cover the ongoing protests against CAA.

The journalist claimed that he was beaten up and his camera was snatched.

The protest at Shaheen Bagh began with the passage of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act in December last year and the ensuing police intervention against students at Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University on December 15. Growing in size by the day, it has now become the longest ongoing protest against CAA-NRC-NPR, triggering similar movements in different parts of the country.

CAA aims to protect religiously persecuted Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan by giving them Indian Citizenship. The cut-off date for those to be given citizenship in India has been fixed at, on or before 31st December 2014.
