The Police informed that 11 FIRs have been filed in connection with the violence, in which 11 people were killed, among them was Delhi Police head constable Ratan Lal.
Because of the continuous violence in various parts of the city, a shoot-at-sight order has been issued in the affected areas of Delhi. Streets were scattered with damage remains of vehicles, bricks, stones, and burnt tires. The violence has left 180 people injured, including 48 police personnel.
For now, the security force is responding to incidents involving anti-social elements. A high alert has been sounded in Lucknow as well.
Various Schools and colleges in North East Delhi will remain closed as well and CBSE has been asked to cancel all examinations.
The Blame game
In the middle of the madness, the state government has decided to play the blame game. It remarks that there was not enough security force to handle the situation.
“The police personnel could not do anything because they were not getting clear orders from their seniors,’’ regretted CM Arvind Kejriwal before his meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah.
The Union Home Minister Amit Shah called out an all-party meeting on Tuesday on the common law and order situation between evident fear that the communal poison may spread to other parts of the Capital.
