The Indian government has imposed Section 144 and tightened the security measures in the Shaheen Bagh area today even though the Hindu Sena had called off a protest calling for clearing the blocked road on February 29.
People have been advised not to assemble, even as Section 144 of the CrCP has been imposed in the area, Hindustan times reported.
"People are informed that Section 144 of CrCP has been imposed here and it is requested that permission for any gathering is not allowed. Violation of this may invite legal proceedings," the Delhi Police directive stated.
A large number of people, mostly women, have been holding a sit-in protest in Shaheen Bagh area since mid-December last year in protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), National Population Register (NPR) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).
