Yogi Govt Declares Cash Reward On Absconding Anti-CAA, NRC Protesters

Lucknow: The Yogi Adityanath-led government has termed 14 anti-citizenship law and National register of Citizens protesters as absconders and announced cash rewards for their arrest.

Eight of these protesters were declared wanted under Gangster Act and notices were pasted outside their houses.

The accused were charged with arson, spreading communal disharmony and causing damage to public properties during the anti-CAA, NRC protest in Lucknow that turned violent.

The administration also displayed pictures of the accused at many places across the old city area and near Imambara.

Over 40 people, including social workers and a retired IPS officer, were arrested in connection with the violent protests in the state last year, in which one person was killed.

The new citizenship law amends the Citizenship Act, 1955, to make people from Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist, Christian and Parsi faiths who entered India from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan eligible for citizenship.
