The anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protester in whose hand a bomb had exploded before he could throw it in protest, has been identified as Rahish, and was arrested by the Delhi police after being admitted to a local hospital.
This was the video of the bomb blowing up in Rahish’s hand. A phrase hath gaya (hand is gone) can be heard in the video. The incident is said to have happened in Delhi’s Seelampur.
As reported by journalist Raj Sekhar Jha, the person who made this video has been identified as Hassan and has been taken into custody by the cops. Rahish too was successfully tracked by the Delhi police authorities and is now in jail.
