The hoardings included their names, addresses, and photos of the violent protesters who damaged public property during the riots that claimed 22 lives in December last year. The rioters were asked to pay the penalty amount within a month.

The vandals have been identified through police reports and other sources. The UP government is looking forward to recovering more than 1.5 Cr from 57 reported rioters across the state of Uttar Pradesh who indulged in vandalism, violence, and arson in the name of anti-CAA protests.

The Uttar Pradesh government has also promulgated the Uttar Pradesh Recovery of Damages to Public and Private Property Ordinance, 2020 to recover damages from rioters. The Ordinance states that the state will set up claims tribunals to investigate the damages caused during protests and to award compensation, and also to cover the cost of action taken by police and administration for prevention of damage to public properties.
