Incidents of stone-pelting broke out between anti- and pro-CAA groups at Maujpur in east Delhi over the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act.

The police had to fire teargas shells amid reports of two people being injured.

The tension erupted after a pro-CAA rally in the area was stoned by a group of anti-CAA protesters.  After the stone-pelting by both groups, the police stepped in to disperse the two groups.

Teargas shells were fired and two people have been reported injured following the outbreak of violence. Maujpur is near Jaffrabad, where anti-CAA protesters had barricaded the road since Saturday night in support of the bandh call given by Chandrasekhar Azad of Bhim Army against the CAA.
