Ghughuti Bulletin

NEW DELHI: For the second time in less than 24 hours, National Security Advisor (NSA)
Ajit Doval landed up in the riot-affected areas of northeast Delhi to personally review the situation and allay the security concerns of local people.

On Wednesday afternoon, he spent more than half an hour in Jaffrabad, among the worst affected areas, and interacting with the local police.

The situation in the riot-hit northeast Delhi “is under control”, Doval said after he held a meeting with senior officials of the
Delhi Police.

At least 22 people have been killed and over 200 injured in communal violence that broke out in northeast Delhi three days ago. Jaffrabad, Maujpur, Babarpur, Yamuna Vihar, Bhajanpura, Chand Bagh, Shiv Vihar are among the areas mainly affected by the riots.

Doval, who has been tasked with checking the violence, held a meeting with the top brass of the Delhi Police at the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Police (northeast) in Seelampur.

Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) Mandeep Singh Randhawa, newly-appointed special CP S N Shrivastava, Special CP (Law and Order) Satisha Golcha and DCP of northeast Delhi Ved Prakash Arya were among those present in the meeting that lasted just over 30 minutes.

This was Doval’s second visit to the office. He had visited the office and met senior officers on Tuesday night.

After the meeting, Doval went to Jaffrabad and Maujpur to take stock of the situation. He interacted with locals and assured them that peace will be ensured in the area.

“The situation is under control and people are satisfied. We have confidence in law enforcement agencies,” he told reporters.

Doval said that police are doing their work and they have been sent to the affected areas on the orders of home minister Amid Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“People have a sense of unity among them, there is no enmity. A few criminals do things like this (spread violence), people are trying to isolate them. Police is here & doing its work. We’re here as per the orders of HM & PM. Inshallah yahan par bilkul aman hoga,” he said.

Doval urged the locals to maintain harmony and work towards resolving each other’s problems.

“My message is that everyone who loves their country also loves their society and their neighbours. Everyone should live with love and harmony with others. People should try to resolve each other’s problems and not increase them,” he said.
