Pro & anti CAA groups continue to clash in Delhi's Maujpur

Feb 24, 2020 16:18 IST

Clashes broke out between pro and anti-CAA groups in Delhi's Maujpur for the second consecutive day on Monday with agitators pelting stones at each other. Police fired tear gas shells and also resorted to lathicharge to disperse the protesters. Clashes broke out Sunday evening between pro and anti-CAA groups near Jaffrabad after people who have been protesting the Citizenship law blocked a road. Police had to fire tear gas shells as members of the two groups pelted stones at each other in Maujpur, soon after a gathering, called by BJP leader Kapil Mishra, demanded that the police remove anti-CAA protestors within three days. The Delhi Metro also closed entry and exit at Jaffrabad and Maujpur-Babarpur stations as an uneasy calm prevailed in the area. Curbs under section 144 have been imposed in the north-East district.
