The Delhi Police late Tuesday issued shoot-at-sight orders in four areas of northeast Delhi — Bhajanpura, Maujpur, Khureji Khas and Chand Bagh — where looting, arson and rioting of unprecedented scale were reported throughout the day even as the toll in the violence over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) climbed to 13. The orders were issued after the MHA appointed SN Shrivastava, a 1985-batch IPS officer, as Special Commissioner (Law and Order), Delhi.

Parallel to the appointment, the Jaffrabad metro station was cleared of women camping there for anti-CAA protests since Saturday, leading to counter-agitations on Sunday that triggered the violence. Two journalists were severely injured and three more attacked as they filmed the violence.
