Anti-CAA riots: RJD workers, armed with sticks and flags with Lalu’s face, vandalise autorickshaws during ‘bandh’ called in Bihar

Like many other states across the country, Bihar had also turned into a war zone as the left-wing parties with support from around six Opposition parties in Bihar called for a statewide shutdown

The anti-CAA protests that have been raging on have soon descended into an excuse to cause riots, violence, arson and vandalisation. Today, visuals emerged from Bhagalpur, Bihar where RJD has called for an anti-CAA ‘bandh’. They are reportedly also opposing NRC. In the visuals, RJD workers, armed with sticks, can be seen vandalising autorickshaws.

The vandals who allegedly belong to RJD can be seen carrying large flags with the photograph of a convicted criminal and party supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav.

Like many other states across the country, Bihar had also turned into a war zone as the left-wing parties with support from around six Opposition parties in Bihar called for a statewide shutdown on Thursday in protest against the amended Citizenship Act and the proposed country-wide implementation of National Register of Citizens.

As per reports, Anti-CAA rioters took to the streets, resulting in large-scale traffic disruption, arson and vandalism. The rioters vandalised private and commercial vehicles in and around Patna during the bandh. In some districts including Patna, Ara and Darbhanga protesters disrupted rail routes.
