Officials said the protesters were asked to vacate the site, but after they relented, cops were forced to take strict action.
The agitation began last year, protesters braved Delhi's chill too
Since mid-December, women have been sitting on streets, in the pocket in South Delhi, to raise their voice against CAA, which makes religion a criterion to grant citizenship to outsiders. They claim by excluding Muslims from the law's ambit, the government has displayed its bigoted nature.
Demanding a rollback, the women raised slogans against the regime of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The protest blocked traffic, mediators were sent to site
Due to the protest, a key road, connecting Noida to Delhi, was blocked, prompting petitioners to approach the Supreme Court.
Noting that the protesters should sit at a designated spot, where the normal public isn't troubled, the apex court appointed mediators to talk to them.
