‘Restore law and order, ensure peace in Delhi’ says Kejriwal over CAA violence

The Delhi Metro has shut entry and exit at Jaffrabad and Maujpur-Babarpur stations as an uneasy calm prevailed in the area

New Delhi: Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal has called the violence between people for and against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) as “distressing news”, and said Home Minister Amit Shah must restore law and order, ensure peace in the national capital.

Kejriwal tweeted and said, “Very distressing news regarding disturbance of peace and harmony in parts of Delhi coming in. I sincerely urge Hon’ble LG n Hon’ble Union Home Minister to restore law and order and ensure that peace and harmony are maintained. Nobody should be allowed to orchestrate flagrations,”.

In national capital today morning, violent clashes broke out in the Bhajanpura and Maujpur neighborhoods of northeast Delhi for a second time in less than 24 hours, as agitators for and against the controversial citizenship law clashed and threw stones at each other.

On Monday, a family was attacked by a group of miscreants in the area but some people managed to rescue them. A 20-year-old young man was also subjected to a brutal assault by a violent mob.

Delhi Police fired tear gas shells and also resorted to lathi-charge to disperse the protesters.

The Delhi Metro has shut entry and exit at Jaffrabad and Maujpur-Babarpur stations as an uneasy calm prevailed in the area.

“Entry and exit of Jaffrabad and Maujpur-Babarpur are closed. Trains will not be halting at these stations,” said DMRC. Entry and exit were closed at the Jaffrabad metro station for over 24 hours since Sunday.

On Sunday evening clashes broke out between pro and anti-CAA groups near Jaffrabad after a huge number of people protesting against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act or CAA blocked a street.
