New Delhi: After the violence following the clashes between pro and anti-CAA groups intensified Monday, videos of Delhi police atrocities and their involvement in the brutality has now become a matter of concern.
A couple of videos have been going viral on social media where Delhi police can be seen pelting stones. In another, a group of cops force some injured anti-CAA protestors to sing the National Anthem as they lay down on the road with critical wounds.
When the protector turns perpetrator, where do we go?!
Shame on @DelhiPolice for disrespecting the value of human life. Is this how the Delhi Police fulfills its Constitutional duty to show respect to our National Anthem?

Many social media users have condemned the atrocity of the Delhi police. Meanwhile, a huge number of men dressed as Army men were spotted at the violence site. While the Indian Army has refuted that the men were from the Army, questions have been raising as to who the men were and what was their intention?

As per the information, exams for class 12 in four vocational subjects in 18 centres in west Delhi will be conducted as per schedule, as there are no centres in the northeast Delhi for this exam.
