At least 11 protesters have been killed across U.P in CAA protests as U.P police appeared instructed to spare no protester over any dissent towards Centre’s new discriminatory law. Police continue to speak in the Home Minister’s language of “Not one bullet fired” reminding of his statements on Kashmir, while U.P hospitals did record at least 11 dead.
U.P. DGP O P Singh said that U.P Police had not fired a “single bullet” even as several injured and dead had gunshot injuries.
Curfew has been imposed and internet has been shutdown in many districts of U.P. indicating that the Home Minister only knows one Kashmir-like policy and U.P’s BJP CM being a staunch follower of the same ideology has adopted the same Iron Hand policy in U.P. Several protesters were killed in other BJP-ruled states also. Mangaluru saw at least 2 killed in police firing. In Assam several protesters were killed.
As many as 200 were arrested and over 3000 were detained by U.P police.
Despite police brutality protesters have remained unshaken and the protests are unlikely to end with several others planned for the coming days.
