In the video, it can be seen that a violent mob is forcefully trying to shut a shop in the city. The woman shopkeeper accompanied by another man threw chilli powder on the protestors to protect themselves from the frenzied mob.
A lady can be seen carrying a packet of chilli powder and chasing the anti-CAA rioters, who tried to forcefully shut the shop. As the duo resorted to self-defence, the violent mob ran away from the spot.
The Yavatmal police have also reportedly baton-charged against the violent mob.
Several organizations have called for a Bharat Bandh against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) on Wednesday.
