"One shot was fired in the Emergency between the clashing groups. No bystanders, other patients or hospital staff were injured. The situation was immediately brought under control," it said.

Registrar of Jamia Millia Islamia Nazim Hussain Jafri told PTI that a scuffle broke out on the campus but was immediately resolved by the authorities.

However, the students got involved in another round of fight at a hospital during which one of them sustained a bullet injury.

"A scuffle broke out on the campus between two groups in the morning and we immediately took action and resolved the issue. In the evening, the group got engaged in another fight and a student suffered injuries and was taken to the hospital," Jafri said.
