A Delhi Police head constable was killed today and a senior officer injured after clashes erupted between anti-CAA protesters and those supporting the citizenship law in Delhi’s Gokulpuri. The situation in northeast Delhi’s Maujpur, Jaffarabad and surrounding areas also went out of control. The police have imposed Section 144 at 10 locations in the area.

Constable Ratan Lal was posted at the ACP Gokalpuri office in Delhi. He was hit by a stone. DCP Amit Sharma, who was injured during the clashes, has been hospitalised.

In videos of today’s violence, a man can be seen running towards an unarmed officer waving what appears to be a gun and firing in the air. In another video, people can be seen throwing stones at each other.

Sources at the Ministry of Home Affairs suggest that the violence was orchestrated most likely in the wake of US President Donald Trump’s visit to India. After visiting Ahmedabad and Agra, the Trumps, on a two-day visit, will arrive in Delhi by 7.30 this evening.

Delhi police commissioner Amulya Patnaik, who is present in the control room, is closely monitoring the situation, sources said.

Senior officials are on ground and sufficient forces have been deployed. The situation in Delhi is under control, Union Home Secy Ajay Bhalla said.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has also urged the Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal and Home Minister Amit Shah to restore law and order and ensure peace in the city.

“I just spoke to the LG. He has assured that more police forces are being sent. Violence will not be tolerated by anyone. I request people to maintain peace. No solution will come out of violence,” Kejriwal said.

In an earlier tweet, Kejriwal said that nobody should be allowed to orchestrate flagrations.

The LG, too, has instructed the police to maintain the law and order in the national capital.

“We have spoken to both sides, now the situation is calm. We are continuously speaking to people, now the situation is under control,” said Ved Prakash Surya DCP (North-East).

Hundreds of protesters had gathered under the Jaffarabad Metro station on Saturday for a peaceful anti-CAA protest. The next morning was also peaceful till BJP leader Kapil Mishra, who has a history of making communal and incendiary comments, held a pro-CAA rally in the area. At the rally, he gave an “ultimatum” to the Delhi police to clear the roads in the area or else, he said, they would have to hit the streets.

“If it doesn’t happen then don’t come to us to make us understand. We will not listen to you. We will be peaceful till US President Donald Trump is here. After that, we won’t listen to even you if the roads are not cleared,” Mishra said.

Mishra had asked people on Twitter to gather at Maujpur at 3 pm on Sunday “to give an answer to Jaffrabad”.

In another tweet, the former AAP leader threatened that “there won’t be another Shaheen Bagh”.

Several people were injured in clashes that followed in Maujpur. Protesters torched at least two houses, a police bus and a fire engine in Jaffrabad and Maujpur.

A group of lawyers have filed a police complaint against Mishra for his provoking and inciteful tweets and remarks he made at the protest site.

As violence spiralled on the second day, the police have appealed for peace.

“It is appealed to the people of Delhi and particularly to the North East District to maintain peace and harmony and not to believe in any false rumours. It is also appealed to the media not to circulate any disturbing pictures which may further aggravate the situation. Delhi Police is making every effort to restore normalcy,” the police said.

Entry and exit gates of Jaffrabad, Maujpur-Babarpur, Gokulpuri, Johri Enclave and Shiv Vihar Metro stations are closed. Trains will terminate at the Welcome metro station.
