Delhi experienced a severe disorder in the North East region due to the communal riots that broke out this past week. The violence has resulted in the deterioration and destruction of the public as well as private properties. Numerous people were injured and the death toll till date stands at 38. Section 144 was imposed in several locations of Delhi, in order to regain peace in the capital city. Hundreds of police officers are patrolling the streets to curb any upsurge of the scattered violence in the north-east. This riot was one of the worst in some years. Interminable torching, wreckage and stone-pelting continued for several days which have finally come to a halt.

The rampage between the protesters and the police took a worse turn as the unrest rose in the city. The reasoning behind the uproar is said to be the result of the hate speeches and confusion generated regarding the recently implemented CAA law. CAA and NPR-NRC combination has produced a lot of doubts in the minds of people, and protests were happening for a while, in favour and against the law being implemented.

The sudden riots took place on the 23rd of February, 2020. This turbulence led to a disruption in the daily life of the general public. The ongoing CBSE board exams for class 10th and 12th have also been postponed in effect of the violent outbreak.

As per the official notice released by the CBSE Headquarters, the papers scheduled on 28th and 29th of February, 2020, have been postponed in the various centres in north-east zone of Delhi. Previously the papers on 25th, 26th and 27th of February had also been delayed. CBSE also said that renewed exams would be conducted of the students who missed their papers in the violence-hit areas. This decision is only relevant for the affected areas in the north-eastern zone, for the rest of the Delhi the schedule being followed is the same.

According to the press release by CBSE, all exams will resume in the same manner as per the original schedule from the 2nd of March onwards.

The decision has been taken in perspective of the possible inconvenience faced by the students, teachers and parents.
