Delhi Violence: "Army Should Be Called In And Curfew Should Be Imposed," Says Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi: As the half, Delhi is burning and northeast is witnessing unparalleled violence the number of death has risen to 17. Stone-throwing between rival groups, arson, and vandalism on Tuesday marked unrelenting violence over citizenship law protest for more than 24 hours in northeast Delhi.
Today Delhi CM said that the situation is alarming, police, despite all its efforts, is unable to control the situation & instill confidence. The army should be called in & curfew should be imposed in the rest of the affected areas immediately. I am writing to the Home Minister to this effect.

As far as 150 people have been injured in the clashes. National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, last night visited area affected by the violence and met with top police officers. To take stock of the law and order situation Mr. Doval visited areas such as Seelampur, Jaffrabad, Maujpur, and Gokulpuri chowk.
Arvind Kejriwal earlier held a press conference today expressing concern over growing tension and violence in North-East Delhi due to the amended Citizenship Act.
He said to block Delhi Borders temporarily in order to stop infiltrators from entering Delhi to stop creating trouble. He also said that the Delhi Police could not do anything to stop the violence and the Delhi Government couldn't do anything since they have their hands tied.
This is the second clash within 24 hours between pro-CAA and anti-CAA where 7 people have been killed and nearly 100 people have been injured.
