Cop killed in Delhi clashes over CAA

A Delhi Police officer was killed and another injured today as violence broke out across multiple northeast Delhi neighbourhoods for a second time in less than 24 hours.

 Protesters for and against the controversial citizenship law threw stones, set vehicles and shops ablaze and transformed parts of the national capital into a war zone, forcing the deployment of paramilitary forces and the banning of large gatherings in the area.

The violence comes hours before United States President Donald Trump is expected in Delhi as part of his two-day state visit. It also comes close on the heels of clashes near Jaffrabad on Sunday afternoon, where over 1,000 women have gathered since Saturday night in a peaceful protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act, or CAA.
