Delhi anti-CAA stir LIVE: Police push back Jamia protesters after they breach barricades
Delhi Police pushed back the anti-CAA protesters in Jamia Nagar after they breached barricades and tried to move towards the Parliament on Monday. The Delhi DCP climbed on top of the barricade to remove the protesters from there. He even made announcements asking the agitators to move back as, he said, they didn’t have permission to move ahead any further.
Security was stepped up in the national capital on Monday in the wake of protests against the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act, National Register of Citizens and National Population Register. While one group gathered at Mandi House to march towards Jantar Mantar, residents of Jamia Nagar prepared to moved towards Parliament.
In view of the “sansad ghero” protest, security policemen have been deployed in the New Delhi area and additional forces have been summoned from four districts. Section 144 has also been imposed in the area.
