Shaheen Bagh protest

Protests have been going on at Shaheen Bagh since December 15 last year against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) due to which Kalindi Kunj road has been shut for traffic movement.

We have the highest respect for motherhood, highest concern for children and they should not be treated badly, says CJI Bobde to lawyers who say they are appearing for mothers of children sitting in protest at Shaheen Bagh.

The woman - identified as Gunja Kapoor - raised suspicion when she kept asking "too many questions", said eyewitnesses. Some protesters insisted on frisking her and found a camera. This led to a commotion and she was caught by several women. Later, police came to the protest site and took her away.

Notably, the development comes a day after Union Minister Anurag Thakur was caught on camera raising slogans calling for ‘shooting dead the traitors,’ at a poll rally in Rithala.

The Kalindi Kunj stretch, a crucial route that connects Delhi with Faridabad and Noida has been closed since December 15 last year due to demonstrations against CAA and NRC. Several commuters using this road have been forced to use alternative routes such as Delhi-Noida-Delhi (DND) Expressway and Ashram.
