According to the government sources, MHA believes it’s a deliberate conspiracy to orchestrate violence in the national capital while the US President Donald Trump is on a two-day visit to India.

The Sources close to MHA believe that the violence was choreographed to clash with US President Donald Trump’s visit to India. The American President who is on a two-day visit to India will be in Delhi tomorrow where he will meet with PM Modi and President Kovind before departing for the United States.

As the situation in Delhi remains tensed, the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi tweeted that Delhi Police and Delhi Police Commissioner have been instructed to ensure law and order is maintained in the city. He has also exported residents to exercise restraint for upholding peace and harmony.

The violence comes on the heels of yet another Shaheen Bagh-kind of gathering mounted by a group of over 500 Muslim women near the Jafrabad Metro Station.  The protesters blocked road No. 66, which connects Seelampur to Maujpur and Yamuna Vihar and were demonstrating against the enactment of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC). The protestors warned that the road would be blocked until CAA is revoked. The police tried to negotiate with the demonstrators to clear the road, but it was in vain. It resulted in traffic woes and massive security deployment in the area.
