Aligarh: anti-CAA protesters warned that they could lose property, and notices were sent to 1,000 people | Agra News

ALIGARH: The district authorities are issuing notices to some 1,000 people sitting in an anti-CAA dharna here, warning that they may lose their property if they do not give a satisfactory explanation of why they are violating the prohibitive orders. In addition, the police are sending “red notices” to some local leaders, warning them not to disrupt the law and order.

Police Superintendent Akash Kulhari said that notices sent to about 1,000 people say that if they don’t give a satisfactory answer, they will begin the process to join their properties.

The process of sending these notices to identified persons has begun, authorities said.

“If they do not give a satisfactory response to the notification within seven days, legal action will be taken against them under the relevant sections of the Criminal Code of India,” said city magistrate Vineet Kumar Singh.

Hundreds of women have been sitting in Dharna throughout the day near Eidgah in the Delhi Gate area during the last week in protest against the Citizenship Law (Amendment) and the proposed National Registry of Citizens.

The authorities have imposed prohibitive orders that prohibit the gathering of people without permission.

On Wednesday, there was an uproar at the protest site when a street bull broke into the crowd of protesters.

A policeman posted there managed to expel the street animal from the crowd of women protesters, many of whom carried children.

A 20-year-old woman was taken to the hospital by the police for medical help. Others also received minor injuries.

According to reports, some protesters raised slogans against the police alleging that the bull had been deliberately released to harass the protesters. The police denied the charge.
