Speaking to ANI, when Gambhir was asked to react to party colleague Kapil Mishra's speech, he said, "If he (Mishra) has given any provoking speech, then strict action should be taken against him."

On Sunday afternoon, Mishra said he gave "ultimatum" to the police to remove anti-CAA protests blocking roads in Northeast Delhi within three days and he would not let the demonstration turn into another Shaheen Bagh.

Mishra led a demonstration before clashes erupted between pro and anti-CAA groups near Jaffrabad in northeast Delhi, where a large number of people who have been protesting against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act had blocked a road since Saturday night.

Fresh violence was reported from parts of northeast Delhi on Tuesday with mobs vandalising shuttered shops and pelting stones, news agency PTI reported.

The area continues to remain tense, a day after seven people, including at least one policeman, were killed and around 50 others, including several paramilitary and police personnel, sustained injuries following clashes over the amended citizenship law.
