Protesters’ suspicion came days after a 50-year-old man allegedly threatened the agitators with a pistol. A group of men attempted to enter and remove barricades. The incident took place around 2.50 pm, when 60-70 men tried to open the barricades, police said. “The men were from the locality. They were aggrieved by the lockdown at Shaheen Bagh and got into an argument with protesters,” police said.
