Communal violence over the amended citizenship law in northeast Delhi has claimed over 34 lives so far after police struggled to check the rioters who ran amok on streets, burning and looting shops, pelting stones and thrashing people on Tuesday.
The protesters blocked interior streets and entrance to the Mint Bridge leading to a traffic snarl, forcing the 1,000 personnel strong police force deployed at the spot to intervene and remove them.
The police and the Bengaluru civic body played the blame game after a BBMP official sent orders to Marathahalli police to bring down the shanties.
The protest went off peacefully without any untoward incident.
