Delhi anti-CAA stir HIGHLIGHTS: At least 16 people were injured in a scuffle that broke out between anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protesters and the Delhi Police in Jamia Nagar on Monday after the protest march was stopped from moving towards Parliament. Jamia Vice- Chancellor Najma Akhtar and other officials visited the hospital to see the injured students.
While most of those injured complained they were kicked in their stomach, one woman complained of an injury to her private parts, said Dr Abdul Nazar, director of Al-Shifa Hospital. He said initial investigations showed no signs of external injury on the woman, and an ultrasound test was being conducted to check for internal injuries.
Amid heavy deployment of security personnel in and around Jamia Millia Islamia University, the protesters including several women began their march against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and National Population Register (NPR) from Jamia’s gate no 7. The demonstrators raised slogans like “Kagaz Nahi Dikhayenge’ (We will not show documents) and “Jab Nahi Dare Hum Goron Se Toh Kyun Dare Hum Auron Se” (When we did not fear the British, why should we fear others).
