    The Centre uploaded the gazette notification for the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act, ensuring the Act comes into play with immediate effect. This has been seen as a defiant move by the government. PM Modi launched the counter campaign where he stated, #IndiaSupportsCAA as CAA is about giving citizenship to persecuted refugees & not denying it.

    The high court directive came while disposing a PIL that advocate Amit Sahni had filed seeking a direction to the Delhi Police Commissioner to lift restrictions on the Kalindi Kunj-Shaheen Bagh stretch and Okhla underpass, which were closed on December 15, 2019, following the protests against CAA.

    Demands for holding Delhi Police Chief Amulya Patnaik accountable for keeping police as "bystanders" during the attacks, and the removal of JNU Vice Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar for failing to "protect" the dignity of the institute grew louder.
