Clash between Police and anti-CAA protesters
Aligarh 23 Feb 2020: Aligarh city was tense after clashes broke out on Sunday evening between police and anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) protesters in Shah Jamal and Uparkot area of Aligarh district, in which at least six persons were injured. Two of the injured are in a critical condition, confirmed officials. As per reports, stones were pelted, a few vehicles were damaged and a ‘Muslim’ shop was partly burnt in the violence. Some women students from AMU are behind this, we are trying to identify them,” he said, adding that “We are ascertaining the damage caused by rioters and it will be recovered from them. The situation is under control now," Singh told media persons. Alleging that the police had displayed a biased approach, the student said men were detained “randomly.” “Shops in Muslim localities were burnt down along with Right-wing goons. The police seemed to provide them cover as they incited communal violence. In the darkness created by the absence of internet, the police, with their Sangh nexus, will do whatever they want to. The DM's claims that we instigated violence is totally unfair as our university is far from where incident took place,” the student added. A hospital spokesperson said five persons had been admitted in the hospital after Sunday’s clashes, including a 25-year-old man, Mohammad Ibrahim, who had pellet injury in his eye. The spokesperson said another youth, Kalim, 22 too was hit by a rubber bullet in his chest but was out of danger. The protesters had taken out the march on a call by Bhim Army chief Chandra Shekhar.
