Northeast Delhi residents leave for safer places

Several Hindu and Muslim residents of Northeast Delhi remained in the grips of fear even as the riots subsided Wednesday, with many packing their bags for 'safer places'. However, there were others who cited the local tradition of harmony and refused to believe the violence was the handiwork of their neighbors. At least 24 people were killed in the three days of rioting that tore through this part of the capital following clashes over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) that erupted Sunday. Over 150 others were injured in the communal frenzy, which saw mobs attack journalists, vandalise religious places and set fire to cars, shops and homes. Left anxious by the “simmering tensions” between the two communities, some daily-wage labourers and rickshaw-pullers also said they would leave Delhi and go back to their homes in UP and Bihar.
