The Delhi Police announced on Monday that security measures had been heightened in North-east Delhi following the announcement of the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

Announcing it on social media, Delhi Police said: “Intensive patrolling and checking was done by North-East district police personnel along with paramilitary forces for the safety of citizens in sensitive areas. Everyone is requested to follow the safety instructions.”

 

Meanwhile, North East DCP Joy Tirkey said: “We have made arrangements in the North East district. Our experience in 2020 was unpleasant which resulted in heavy loss. The rules will be notified today and we were alerted by the Police Headquarters.”

“We had a meeting of the Aman Committee where we briefed people of both communities. We have tagged the potential troublemakers and some known criminals. We are in touch with our beat constables and keeping an eye on social media too. We are doing a flag march for two days and will have an extensive flag march from tomorrow. Special care will be taken in sensitive areas through drones,” he added.

CAA just a political gimmick before LS polls: Mamata Banerjee

The state’s DGP Prashant Kumar has directed officers to maintain vigilance as additional forces are stationed in sensitive areas. The DGP headquarters is also tasked with monitoring social media to regulate potentially inflammatory content.

The announcement followed the formal notification of the rules by the Union Home Ministry for the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), a development expected in anticipation of the upcoming Lok Sabha election schedule announcement.

Notably, the CAA aims to grant citizenship to Hindus, Jains, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Parsis who arrived in India on or before December 31, 2014, from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.
