Angry commuters on Mumbai’s central line on Wednesday (29 January) confronted and clashed with anti-CAA protesters after the latter began a Rail Roko agitation at Kanjurmarg station at around 8.00 AM in the morning, India Today has reported.
As part of a supposed Bharat Bandh around 50 members of Bahujan Kranti Morcha blocked the railway track and began raising slogans against CAA and NRC. This resulted in a local track getting blocked during peak office hour.
Soon irate office commuters decided to walk near the protesters and confront them demanding that they call off their protest as the commuters are getting late for office.
Soon a clash erupted between the commuters and the protesters. Cops soon arrived at the scene and removed the protesters from the tracks. Some of them were also detained by the cops.
