Delhi: clashes continue under unprecedented security cover

Feb 25, 2020 16:33 IST

For the third straight day on Tuesday, group clashes over the amended citizenship law continued in several parts of northeast Delhi despite the deployment of an unprecedented security cover. Multiple reports said that arsonists favoring and opposing the citizenship law attempted to burn down public and private property in the riot-hit areas. Clashes were reported in Khajoori Khas, Bhajanpura chowk and Maujpur. A Hindustan Times report said the police’s limited success on Tuesday was to keep the mobs from Jafrabad and Maujpur away from each other, by nearly 400 metres and the men in uniform mostly used a handsoff approach. Multiple reports also said that rioters from both the sides were armed and kept shooting at each other.
