A pattern emerges

Even during the earlier bout of violence that had broken out in the country in December, where violent mobs had gone on a rampage in the name of protesting against the CAA and NRC, several videos and images had surfaced where Islamists mobs were seen trying to break the CCTV cameras in a bid to avoid detection. Videos of CCTV footage had emerged from Mangaluru where it can be seen that the rioters adjusted various CCTV cameras in the region to prevent them from recording their hooliganism on the 19th of December 2019.
