New Delhi, Feb 29: Massive stock-piling of arms and mobilisation of mobs is what led to the Delhi violence. The police were caught off guard at such mobilisation and in several instances were outnumbered.
Last Saturday there was palpable tension in Northeast Delhi. There were Intelligence Bureau reports about a possible flare up. However for the Delhi Police it was a catch 22 situation and its 73 reserve battalions were all over the city owing to the visit by US President Donald Trump.
