Today's firing took place hours after a group of locals on Sunday staged a demonstration near the anti- Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protest site in Delhi's Shaheen Bagh. The locals were demanding the removal of barricades from the road connecting Noida with Kalindi Kunj.
They also demanded that the people, who have been sitting on a dharna there for over a month to protest against the act, should clear the stretch as the commuters are facing difficulties. Delhi police also detained few people marching towards the anti-CAA protest site.
