India: Students Try to Break Through Police Barricades at Anti-Citizenship Act Protest

Students were seen trying to break through police barricades, as crowds flooded the streets of New Delhi, with people protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register for Citizens (NRC), on Thursday.

Protesters were seen trying to break the fences with the riot police holding the barricades and trying to push the protesters back.

The protest was held on the anniversary of the killing of prominent India’s independence campaigner, Mahatma Gandhi that happened in 1948.

During Thursday demonstrations, one of the protesters was injured by a gunman, who had reportedly chanted slogans against protesters before firing the gun. The attacker was detained with the police investigating the case.

Protests have swept the country after the Indian Parliament passed the CAA on December 11, entitling religious minority migrants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan to Indian citizenship if they entered the country before the end of December 2014. The amendment has come under criticism for discriminating against undocumented Muslim migrants. The NRC, in turn, is used in Assam state to identify illegal immigrants with the government’s goal to implement it throughout the country.
