Women leave Jafrabad metro protest site

Feb 26, 2020 08:44 IST

The women protesters staging a sit-in at Jafrabad in north-east Delhi against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act and the National Register of Citizens called off their protest after elders of the community requested them. A police team led by Northeast Deputy Commissioner of Police Atul Thakur held talks with senior community members in the Jafrabad area. After the talks, elder members of the community convinced the women protesters to call off their protest from Jafrabad metro station and shift to Seelampur. But soon after the women left the protesting site, the police resorted to lathi-charge to disperse a crowd.
