BJP leader Ashwani Upadhyay has filed a petition in the High Court in a case of sabotage in Delhi’s Jamia Nagar in protest of the Citizenship Amendment Act. In the petition, the BJP leader has demanded from the Delhi High Court that the losses incurred due to sabotage in the Jamia violence should be recovered from those arrested. For this, the court should order the concerned department and the government.
While hearing the petition of Ashwani Upadhyay, the bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Harishankar has not issued any order. The court said that we will consider it later.
Explain that people protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act in Jamia had turned violent. In Kalindi Kunj, Okhla and New Friends Colony, miscreants vandalized several vehicles while setting several on fire. According to the information, four DTC buses, 10 bikes and more than 100 private vehicles were set ablaze by the miscreants. Many policemen were also hurt in the stone pelting of the protesters. Police arrested many people in this case.
The loss in violence is being done in UP
There were violent protests in many parts of the country against the Citizenship Amendment Act. Recently, in UP too, miscreants vandalized and set fire to many places. Taking a tough stance, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has ordered the damages to be recovered from the properties of the miscreants. Following the CM’s order, the DGP headquarters has called for the details of the loss of properties under the lawsuits filed for violent demonstrations. Information has started coming from different zones. On the basis of initial information, property worth crores in the violence is estimated to be set on fire.
The police will expedite the legal process of compensating the accused from the properties after the total loss is assessed. An official said that complete information has not been received from many districts. Information is being sought from them again. DGP OP Singh says that the work of estimating the total damage is going on by collecting the details of the damage done to the property. Soon the process will be completed and a report will be sent to the government.
