Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said that he’s worried over the prevailing situation in certain parts of Delhi. Appealing people of Delhi to make all efforts to restore peace, Kejriwal urged everyone to shun violence. He also called an urgent meeting of the MLAs of all parties along with senior officials in wake of clashes over anti and pro-CAA protesters.
A total of five people, including a police constable, have died as violence over the citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) spiralled across northeast Delhi on Monday. Despite police efforts, frenzied protesters torched several houses, shops, vehicles and petrol pumps.
The most-affected areas where the clashes broke out between pro and anti-CAA groups include Jaffrabad, Maujpur, Chandbagh, Khureji Khas and Bhajanpura.
