100-Word-Edit: States struggle to contain Violence
Despite the intelligence inputs on CAA Protests, some State Governments miserably failed to contain the violence and arson that stunned the nation today.
Uttar Pradesh was worst hit, while situation was no better in Karnataka and Gujarat. At least 3 people died in police firing – 2 in Mangaluru and 1 in Lucknow. Large-scale violence and arson were reported from these States.
In Gujarat, policemen were seen running for cover as they were chased and stoned by the rampaging mob. While strong action must be taken against the hooligans, the State Governments have a lot to answer on their failure.
