New Delhi: The teenager, who brandished his country-made pistol and opened fired at the Jamia student during a protest march towards Rajghat, went live from his Facebook profile just minutes before going to commit the act.

The alleged accused wrote a first post around 11 am in which he mentioned “all brothers are requested to see me first.” Later he went live on Facebook and showed the students who had gathered outside Jamia university to march towards Rajghat.

In most of his Facebook live footages, the accused can be seen walking around the protest venue looking around furtively for a target. While in his previous posts, which he wrote today, pointed out that he had pre-planned the attack and was prepared for the consequences.

His posts read: “Going to f*** them in two minutes” “Please take care of my family.” “Im the only Hindu here” referring to the protest by Muslims. He even told people not to call him.

“In one of his posts he has taken a person’s name stating that this revenge is for him. I’m on my last journey, I want to be draped in saffron colour and want people to chant ‘Jai Sri Ram’.”

His last post before going live on Facebook again was “ Shaheen Bagh, Game over,” referring to the massive protest led by women in the area since December 15.

In one of the videos which went viral on social media shows him brandishing the gun while shouting “Yeh lo Azadi” (here’s your freedom).

Later he fired at the protesters before being over powered by the people around him and arrested by police.
