New Delhi:

Delhi’s Jamia Millia Islamia once again turned tense on Tuesday after a group of people supporting the Citizenship Amendment Act reached the area, where hundreds of people are protesting against the controversial law. In videos, which are being circulated on social media, people can be seen proceeding towards the university and chanting slogans of “desh ke gaddaron ko, goli maaro s****n ko” (shoot traitors of the country).

Sources said the group of youth from Sonipat in Haryana carrying the Tricolour reached Jamia around 3.30 pm. “They were raising objectionable slogans. As the police were deployed near the protest site, the group was stopped there. After a few minutes, the police detained all of them and sent to Kalkaji police station,” said the sources.

Restrictions have been imposed on the Kalindi Kunj-Shaheen Bagh stretch and Okhla underpass since December 15, when hundreds of women sat on a protest against the amended law.

The incident comes on a day when Union Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai informed the Lok Sabha that incidents of violence, unlawful gathering, stone pelting, and damage to public and personal property were reported during the protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) in Delhi.

Rai also said the central government has received resolutions adopted by the legislative assemblies of certain states such as Rajasthan against the CAA and the Kerala government has also filed a suit in the Supreme Court under Article 131 of the Constitution.

Rai also said the CAA has come into force from January 10, 2020.

'Citizenship' is a central subject under entry number 17 of List I- Union List under Seventh Schedule of the Constitution and the Parliament has legislative competence to enact laws for all central subjects under List I as provided under Article 246(1) of the Constitution, he said.
