As per reports, Prajapati had bleeding inside his brain and the resultant septic shock had caused a cardiac arrest.

In Jharkhand’s Lohardaga, When the pro-CAA march was passing through a Muslim locality near Amla Toli on 23 January, stones and petrol bombs were hurled at the participants by the local Muslims. Women became the specific targets of the ruthless mob. Shops and homes belonging to the Hindus were set on fire. This created a state of panic and resulted in a stampede. Roughly, 100 participants and 24 policemen had sustained injuries during the unprovoked attack by the violent mob.

The police were forced to fire several rounds in the air. In order to diffuse the situation, Police Captain Priyadarshi Alok and Deputy Commissioner Akansha Ranjan rushed to the scene with additional force. Curfew was imposed in the city. All roads entering the city were constantly monitored. Ground reports had stated that the violent Muslim mob had gone on a rampage suddenly, giving the police no time to react, and had specifically targeted Hindu homes.

On Monday night, miscreants had again torched a truck parked outside a local councillor’s house. CRPF personnel have also been deployed now to take control of the situation.
