The Centre would do everything in its power to ensure the law is implemented, Amit Shah says

Prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, which bans the gathering of more than four people, have been imposed in North East Delhi.

The orders were imposed on Wednesday after protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act turned violent on the previous night.

The Supreme Court refused to stop the implementation of the amended law, and issued a notice to the Centre. 

It was hearing nearly 60 petitions challenging the recent amendments to the Citizenship Act. 

The top court also asked the central government to respond to the pleas by the second week of January.

Union Minister of Home Affairs Amit Shah said on Tuesdaythe Centre would do everything in its power to ensure the law is implemented.

The amendments have relaxed conditions for migrants of six non-Muslim communities from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to get Indian citizenship.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday afternoon a protest turned violent in North East Delhi’s Seelampur locality, prompting police to use tear gas shells and baton-charge. Protestors reportedly burnt vehicles and threw stones at police. 

In the evening in Chennai, police entered the University of Madras campus amid a student protest. Two students were detained.
