Bengaluru: In wake of Delhi violence over the amended citizenship, which claimed 22 lives so far, Home minister Basavaraj Bommai informed that the Police and intelligence have been asked to be on alert and take preemptive measures.

“We have been keeping a close watch on the developments after the Delhi incident. I have instructed my officers to be on alert and take precautionary actions rather than actions after the incidents,” Bommai was quoted speaking to ANI.

“The day before yesterday we had a high-level meeting…we are having a close watch,” he added.

Communal violence over the amended citizenship law had escalated in northeast Delhi on Tuesday as police struggled to check the rioters who ran amok on streets, burning and looting shops, pelting stones and thrashing people.
