On the one hand, while continuous efforts are being made to bring peace amid heavy violence in Northeast Delhi, on the other hand a large number of security forces have been deployed in the violence affected area. Security forces are carrying out flag marches in those areas continuously.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has tweeted for the first time on Delhi violence and appealed to the people to maintain peace. PM Modi tweeted, “Peace and harmony are central to our ethos. I appeal to my sisters and brothers of Delhi to maintain peace and brotherhood at all times. It is important that there is calm and normalcy is restored at the earliest.”

 

The violence that first erupted on Sunday has also left at least 250 injured. For three days, the national capital witnessed violence with groups of men roaming in parts of northeast Delhi with rods and sticks, setting ablaze houses and shops owned by Muslims. The Delhi Police mostly remained mute spectators as mobs ran riot on the streets and attacked people.

Significantly, the conflict between the groups that supported and opposed the CAA in northeast Delhi took a communal color. The protesters set fire to several houses, shops and vehicles and threw stones at each other. As of Wednesday, at least 20 people lost their lives and around 200 people were injured in these incidents.
