KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): At least 20 people have been killed and more than 200 injured in New Delhi during clashes between Hindutva mobs and anti-CAA protesters.

20 people died and nearly 200 others were wounded in the first two days of violence, the director of the hospital where people were taken, told AFP on Wednesday.

The hospital director added that at least 60 people had suffered gun shot wounds.

The clashes, which coincided with a visit to India by US President Donald Trump, erupted early this week between thousands demonstrating for and against the new citizenship law introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist led government.

Critics say the law is biased against Muslims and undermines India’s secular constitution.

Kejriwal, who visited the Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital, earlier pleaded for the “madness to stop”, according to PTI.

Delhi Police spokesperson Mandeep Randhawa called on locals “not to take the law in their own hands”.
