Five people, including a cop, were killed and around 50 were injured today after violence broke out across northeast Delhi for a second time in less than 24 hours. Protesters for and against the controversial citizenship law threw stones, set vehicles and shops ablaze and transformed parts of the national capital into a war zone, forcing the deployment of paramilitary forces and the banning of large gatherings in affected areas. In the evening, Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla said the situation was "under control" but violence continues to be reported from neighbourhoods in the area. The Union Home Ministry has said it will "monitor the situation". The violence came mere hours before United States President Donald Trump, who landed shortly before 7.30 pm, was expected in Delhi.
