Delhi violence: Death toll rises to 32, says senior Health department official

New Delhi : Northeast Delhi remains on the edge this morning with 32 dead and over 200 injured after four straight days of clashes over the citizenship law. Reports of arson and unrest emerged from northeast Delhi’s Bhajanpura, Maujpur and Karawal Nagar areas late on Wednesday, hours after National Security Advisor Ajit Doval visited violence-affected areas of the national capital to offer personal guarantees that the government would restore peace. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday made his first public statement, calling for “peace and brotherhood”. Home Minister Amit Shah, under fire for failure to control the violence, has held multiple review meetings. Delhi Police has filed 18 FIRs and arrested 106 people in connection with the violence, which they say is now under control. (Agencies)
