Uttar Pradesh had turned into a war zone last week with anti-CAA rioters taking to the streets resorting to arson and severe vandalism, claiming as many as 11 lives. UP police have informed that 218 persons have been arrested and 3305 detained for defying prohibitory orders. Section 144 was enforced in the state on Wednesday night. It has been extended in the state till 31st January.

Protesters in the state vandalised of torched several police vehicles in Amroha, Bijnor, Muzaffarnagar, BulandShahr and Hapur, and police were unable to stop them even after using teargas shells and batons. Rioters resorted to stone-pelting and other violent activities during the anti-CAA protests. In several cities, self-imposed curfew was seen as shopkeepers kept their shutters down in fear of vandalism.

A 22-year-old man died of a bullet injury on Saturday in Rampur during the violence in which several locals and policemen were injured, and six vehicles, including a police motorcycle, were torched.

The police have assessed the total damage to property to the tune of Rs 15 lakh so far which would be compensated by those involved in its destruction, a senior official said. The process is underway to attach the properties of those identified so far, he said.
