New Delhi: After witnessing days of horror, normalcy started to return in Kanda Market area in Maujpur amidst fear and rounds of rumours.
Speaking to IANS, a local said on Wednesday, "A few shops have reopened today but there is still a lot of fear in the minds of people here".
The locals in the area were seen interacting with their friends and acquaintances to enquire about the situation in the neighbouring areas, and also to check upon them about their safety.
While the main road sustained the maximum damage, the interiors on the damage count remained low.
Rahul Tyagi, a local resident said, "We are living here together since a long time and the reason that there was less damage inside is because we stood together to guard our properties and people."
Since Sunday, several parts of north east Delhi had witnessed widespread violence between supporters and opponents of the Citizenship Amendment Act.
At least 20 people have died and around 190 people were injured in the violence in some parts of North-East Delhi.
