Delhi Police Head Constable Ratan Lal who suffered critical head injuries after stone pelting by a murderous mob in Jaffarabad in New Delhi has died. He was at the anti-CAA protest site when the so-called protesters started to pelt stones which injured many. Ratan Lal who was rushed to the hospital could not be saved.
Ratan Lal was attached to the Gokalpuri police station. He along with other constables were manning the area near the Jaffarabad Metro Station which was forcefully occupied by the Islamist mob in the name of protests against CAA. The protests turned violent on the day US President Donald Trump is visiting India.
Videos of stone pelting have emerged which show that the anti-CAA protesters resorted to unprovoked violence against the police and damaged public property.
The violent mob made up of Islamists set fire to petrol pumps and also targeted several Hindu homes. There are reports of several rounds of bullets fired on policeman from the mob. It was when the police tried to stop the mob from further escalation of violence, the protesters at Jaffarabad resorted to unprovoked pelting of stones. It was in this pelting that Ratan Lal was killed.
