Anti-CAA protesters gather outside Jaffrabad metro station in Delhi

New Delhi, February 23, 2020

A large number of anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) protesters gathered outside the Jaffrabad metro station in northeast Delhi on Saturday night.

The protesters blocked road no. 66 which connects Seelampur to Maujpur and Yamuna Vihar.

Police force in large numbers reached the spot to ensure law and order.

However, protesters claimed that there was not a single female police official present at the site. They further said that it was just a move to intensify the movement against the new citizenship law and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

Shadab, one of the protesters said, "This protest is against CAA, NRC and also seeking reservation for Dalits. The movement is primarily led by the women, while the men are only supporting them".

"We have blocked the road in order to protest and we will not move from the site till the Centre revokes the draconian law," the protester added.
