PTI, Mar 1, 2020, 12:18 PM IST

New Delhi: The national capital continued to remain on edge as the Delhi police tightened deployment of security personnel in southeast Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh area, which has been a site of zealous protest for a protracted period.

Thousands of protesters, mainly women, have been leading a protest on the road at Delhi’s Shaheen Badh against the new citizenship law for more than two months.

The police deployment has come after a fringe right-wing group, Hindu Sena, gave a call to clear the Shaheen Bagh road on March 1.

The Hindu Sena said in a statement that police pressured them to call off their protest on Sunday against the Shaheen Bagh agitation.

However on Saturday, with the intervention of the state police, the group called off their proposed protest against the anti-CAA agitation in Shaheen Bagh.

The Hindu Sena said in a statement that police pressured them to call off their protest on Sunday against the Shaheen Bagh agitation.

“The proposed protest call was cancelled with timely intervention. But as a precautionary measure, we have made heavy police deployment here,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast) RP Meena said.

Twelve companies, including two of female forces, have been deployed in Shaheen Bagh, 100 men each from four police districts have also been deployed along with the local police, the official said.

Shaheen Bagh, near Jamia Millia Islamia, has been a protest venue where scores of people have openly opposed the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) since December 15 last year.
