Violence ripped through parts of northeast Delhi on Monday after groups protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and those supporting it clashed with each other, leading to arson and vandalism in the area.
The clashes fanned out to Chand Bagh, Mustafabad, Brijpuri, Shiv Vihar and Noor Ilahi until Tuesday in which at least 20 persons, including a police head constable, died and over 200 got injured.
Doval has been tasked with containing the violence, and will apprise the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) of the situation in Delhi.
