The police have arrested a burqa-clad woman this morning at Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh after her presence raised suspicion.
The woman identified as Gunja Kapoor, raised suspicion when she kept asking “too many questions”, said eyewitnesses. Some protesters insisted on checking her and found a camera. This led to an uproar and she was caught by the protesters.

Later, the police came to the protest site and took her away.
As per media report, when she was asked about carrying the camera, Gunja flipped and said: “This is not media’s hot moment. Go!”
She is followed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP leader Tejasvi Surya on Twitter.
For the uninitiated, three separate incidents of shooting at anti-CAA protests in Delhi were reported last week. Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh is the heart of protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act or CAA.
