6 policemen stabbed inside police station: Shahdara, Delhi

As many as five policemen and one home guard were stabbed inside a police station in the national capital on Wednesday, an official said. According to the official, the incident took place on Wednesday afternoon when the accused person arrived at the cyber police station in Shahdara district.

“The accused person has been nabbed and is being interrogated,” Delhi Police spokesperson Suman Nalwa said. Of the injured cops, the condition of one is said to be critical who has been shifted to the AIIMS Trauma Centre while the rest are currently admitted to the GTB Hospital.

The police are yet to share the motive behind the attack. Several media outlets (here, here, here, here) have covered the crime but no one has reported the name of the accused.

Shekhar Gupta’s The Print, for reasons best known to them, decided to question the criticality of the seriously wounded constable in its headline –

Shahdara is a part of the trans-Yamuna area in East Delhi, and is infamous for crime and illegal immigrant colonies. It consists of or is close to localities like Seelampur, Bhajanpura, Seemapuri, Chand Bagh, Jaffrabad which witnessed Islamist violence during the anti-CAA protests and subsequent anti-Hindu Delhi riots. Many colonies in the area like Brahmpuri, Sundar Nagari have already witnessed large scale exodus of Hindus.
