Delhi Police clear Shaheen Bagh protest site

NEW DELHI: Delhi Police on Tuesday vacated the Shaheen Bagh protest site to enforce the lockdown under Section-144 of CrPC that does not allow a public gathering. The protesters were informed about an eviction earlier as well. The protest had been going on for more than 100 days.
Police say that most of the protesters had vacated the site willingly on Monday leaving their belongings, while a handful of them stayed back. These people too were informed that not more than four people would be allowed to gather at the protest site due to the prohibitory orders.

“People at the protest site in Shaheen Bagh were requested today to clear the site as lockdown has been imposed. But after they refused, action was taken against violators as the assembly was unlawful. Protest site has been cleared. Some protesters have been detained,” said DCP South East.

On Tuesday morning, cops brought in cranes to remove the temporary structures erected along the road. The massive tent under which the protests were held were also dismantled.
Earlier, protesters said they would be taking turns through the day to man the protest site from Monday. They would also not be allowed to use microphones, as it is prohibited under Section 144 of the CrPC, currently imposed in the city.
