Earlier yesterday, black clouds of smoke consumed parts of North-East Delhi as communal violence broke out in these parts of the capital.
A new footage of violence in North East Delhi has recently surfaced on the internet. In this video, policemen are seen surrounding injured protestors and beating them with batons as they taunt them with slogans of "Azaadi".
@DelhiPolice अगर आप इस तरह से समाज की रक्षा करेंगे, तो आपसे कौन बचाएगा इंसानियत को?— We The People of India (@ThePeopleOfIN) February 24, 2020
Police requested not to unnecessarily spread photos provocating violence. How do we react to such heinous acts?

( If you look close enough, you can see the police officials recording this incident of police brutality on their personal phones)
Netizens are disappointed to witness this police brutality:
Action must be initiated against these police wala gundas who are beating injured and ask them to sing jana gana man......These are Delhi Police gundas who sided with one community. Rather their duty was to control the riots and arrest whosoever are responsible for the trouble.— Khatib Alam Khan (@KhatibAlamKhan1) February 26, 2020
All Delhi police personnel should be booked , stripped of their jobs and titles, labeled terrorists and get a life imprisonment for eternity ......— Ahmad Khan (@iKimWasabi) February 25, 2020

As we write this, the death toll in North-East Delhi has climbed to 20. We really hope that actions are taken by the government to restore peace and harmony in the affected areas.
