On Tuesday, the CM was responding to SP MLA Rakesh, clarified that none of the anti-CAA rioters in the state died of police bullets. While referring to these incidents of violence in his speech in the assembly last week, the CM had said that “rioters were killed by rioters”.

Following the passage of the Citizenship Amendment Act, the anti-CAA rioters descended on to streets to protest against the law. The mobs had resorted to vandalism and had gone on a rampage against the police officials. The rioters had already destructed several public properties while indulging in stone-pelting to attack police officials.

However, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had announced tough measures to combat the anti-citizenship amendment act (CAA) rioters and promised to seize the property of every rioter and use its funds to repair the damaged public property. The Uttar Pradesh government had also identified at least 498 properties to seize them, which belonged to rioters who vandalized public properties in the state during the anti-CAA protest.

The Uttar Pradesh government led by Yogi Adityanath had also walked the talk on their promise of making rioters pay for damaging the public property in the state as Muslim residents of Bulandshahr was made to pay over Rs 6 lakh to the district magistrate.
