Seven killed in Delhi during clashes over CAA




Seven people have been killed in Delhi in protests over the controversial new citizenship law.

A policeman and six civilians died in the capital’s deadliest day since the new law was passed last year.

Vehicles were set alight in the clashes, between supporters and opponents of the law, which critics say targets India’s 200 million Muslims.

The violence in the Muslim-majority areas in north-east Delhi began on Sunday and continued into Monday. It is the first time a member of the security forces has been killed in the unrest around India since it erupted late last year.
