Maujpur Jaffrabad Clashes over CAA NRC

New Delhi: Sporadic incidents of stone pelting on Sunday between anti and pro-CAA groups at Maujpur in east Delhi broke a relative lull in tension over the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act.

Maujpur is near Jaffrabad, where anti-CAA protesters had barricaded the road since Saturday night in support of the bandh call given by Chandrasekhar Azad of Bhim Army against the CAA.

Metro stations have been shut down in the area as a precautionary measure. Metro rail stations that have been shut down include the Maujpur-Babarpur and the Seelampur metro station, adding to the overall congestion and chaos prevailing in the area.

According to reports, a clash between pro and anti-CAA protesters led to stone-pelting. BJP's controversial leader Kapil Mishra and others arrived near the Jaffrabad Metro Station at around 3 pm and demanded the road to be emptied.

At around 4 pm, some people came from a street and started pelting stones.

Kapil Mishra of BJP was in news during the recently concluded Delhi state elections for hate speeches against people protesting against the CAA-NRC-NPR.

Following stone pelting by both groups, the police stepped in to disperse the two groups. Teargas shells were fired and two people have been reported injured following the outbreak of violence.

More security forces are being directed to the spot from other areas including nearby Jaffrabad.
