New Delhi: A Delhi court on Saturday granted bail to Kapil Gujjar, who fired three shots in the air near Shaheen Bagh, last month.

Kapil, who belongs to east Delhi's Dallu Pura area, had on February 1 fired three bullets in the air after warning anti-CAA protesters to disperse. He also shouted communal slogans.

Additional Sessions Judge Gulshan Kumar let him off on bail on Friday on a bail bond of 25,000 and a surety of similar amount.

During the course of proceedings, the police strongly opposed the bail application and contended that the allegations against Kapil are serious in nature and that the investigation in the case is at an initial stage.

The counsel, representing him, however, told the court that his client will not tamper with the evidence or influence the witnesses in the case.

"It is further submitted that applicant has clean antecedents and he has never been involved in any other case in past," advocate Narveer Dabas told the court while seeking bail for his client.
