Shaheen Bagh protest: Burqa-clad woman raises suspicion

Amid the ongoing protests at Delhi's Shaheen Bagh against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act or CAA, a burqa clad woman was whisked away today morning by police. Her presence at the protest site for being round-the-clock sit-in raised suspicion. 

The woman - identified as Gunja Kapoor - raised suspicion when she kept asking "too many questions", said eyewitnesses. Some protesters insisted on frisking her and found a camera. This led to an uproar and she was caught by the protesters. Later, police came to the protest site and took her away.

On being asked by reporters why she was carrying a 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.

The latest incident comes after three separate incidents of shooting at anti-CAA protests in Delhi were reported last week.
