My family has nothing to do with AAP: Shaheen Bagh shooter's father


New Delhi, Feb 05: The family of the man who fired shots at the Shaheen Bagh protest in Delhi last week has denied that he is linked to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), contradicting the Delhi police claims.

"Neither I nor my family has anything to do with AAP. They came to the campaign during the Lok Sabha election (last year) and made us all wear AAP caps and that is what the photo is," Kapil's father Gaje Singh said.
