LUCKNOW: Renewing the appeal for peace following violent protests over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), UP CM Yogi Adityanath, on Thursday, said that the miscreants would be dealt with an iron fist.

The CM, meanwhile, directed the DGP and Additional Chief Secretary, Home, to ensure the protection of common man’s property while bringing all the trouble makers to book.

He said that the anti-social elements involved in the violence were already identified and strictest action would be taken against them. He claimed that the administration was keeping a close eye on rumour mongers as well.

"Property of all those involved in this violence will be confiscated and damage done to the public property would be recovered. Their faces are captured in videos and CCTV footage. We will confiscate their property and will take its revenge from them," Adityanath said.
