Delhi anti-CAA riots: Amidst chants of ‘Allah Hu Akbar’ and ‘Nara e Taqbeer’, Hindu man killed by a Muslim mob in Brahmapuri

A man named Shahrukh was seen firing at a policeman. Muslim mobs have been wreaking havoc in the national capital in the names of protests. Several vehicles have been gutted and violent stone pelting has been reported in many areas.

The National Capital of the country was in the throes of unprecedented violence and rioting as the Muslim anti-CAA rioters went on a rampage in Delhi against the Citizenship Law, seeking to draw international attention amidst the high-profile visit of US President Donald Trump.

Incidents of violence, arson, stone-pelting were reported from several parts of the city, especially northeast Delhi as anti-CAA protesters went on pelting stones, vandalising and attacking shops and markets.

The videos of the clashes made it to the Internet. Social media is abuzz with disconcerting videos from Delhi in which anti-CAA protesters are seen brazenly indulging in acts of violence and arson. In one such video that is going viral on the Internet, the body of a Hindu activist was seen being dragged to the far end of a street in Brahmapuri even as the violent Muslim mob passionately shouts slogans of “Nara e Taqbeer, Allahu Akbar”. A bike parked nearby is also seen being torched by the anti-CAA rioters.

In another video of the same incident, the person who appears to have recorded the clip says that Muslims in Brahmapuri neighbourhood of Delhi have sent a body of a Hindu activist with a message that such bodies will be delivered to them throughout the night. “Muslims have a sent a body of our Hindu brother in the lane number 1 of Brahmapuri with a message that we are going to send such bodies all night long,” the man says. As per social media reports, the murdered man is a local Hindu activist named Vinod.

In the video, one can also see a man trying to wake the murdered man up, hoping that he is breathing and can be revived. However, he does not respond, appearing to have succumbed to his injuries. It has now been confirmed that a Hindu activist named Vinod had died in the clashes that broke out in Delhi’s Brahmapuri area.
