Delhi ministers Gopal Rai, Imran Hussain and other Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs camped outside Lt Governor Anil Baijal’s residence late Monday night to discuss with him the law and order situation in parts of northeast Delhi.
Mr Rai said situation has become tense in his constituency Babarpur and alleged that there is no police deployment.
“I have reached the LG House to discuss deteriorating law and order situation. People indulged in violence are firing,” Mr Rai said in a video posted on Twitter.

A head constable was among five people killed and at least 50 others, including several paramilitary and Delhi Police personnel, were injured as violence spiralled over the amended citizenship law in northeast Delhi, turning it into a battlefield on Monday with protesters torching houses, shops, vehicles and a petrol pump, and hurling stones.
