A video has been released by the UP Police in Meerut recorded on December 20, 2019 during the protests against the Citizenship law in which the cops are being fired at by the protesters.

The videos and photos, which were released by the Police clearly show 2 men firing at cops during the protests in Meerut. Close to 16 deaths have been registered in the state due to clashes last week, the death toll of Meerut amounting to 6 alone.

One such video released by the Police shows a masked man in a blue jacket walking around with a gun. Even though many bodies of those killed in violence bore gunshot injuries, the Police refused to acknowledge the fact that they used anything other than plastic pellets and rubber bullets. The only place in UP where Police has admitted that a non-conformist was killed in a cross fire is Bijnor. 

The video has been released by the police to justify their claims of being attacked by Anti-CAA protestors. 

Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police, OP Singh said, “As many as 288 policemen were injured in violence that erupted across 21 districts. Sixty-two of them suffered firearm injuries.The Police have recovered 500 cartridges of prohibited bores from places where violence broke out.”

PM Narendra Modi also slammed the extremists by saying,

People who damaged public property and were involved in violence in the name of protest in UP should introspect if what they did was right.
