As reported by news agency ANI, the protestors had gathered at Shaheen Bagh to celebrate the 71st Republic Day.

The mob could be seen clapping and waving plastic tricolours. Former JNU student and activist Umar Khalid and Gujarat MLA Jigesh Mevani were also present here. Earlier today, they had also unfurled the national flag to mark the Republic Day.

Later, a second flag was also hoisted when the crowd of ‘protestors’ had soared.
