10 people have been killed and 150 injured in clashes that coincided with Trump's maiden visit to India.
As United States President Donald Trump was greeted with large crowds and much fanfare on his maiden visit to India, the country's capital — Delhi — was witnessing its deadliest riots yet since protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act began over two months ago.
On Monday, Trump landed in Ahmedabad, the largest city in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state of Gujrat, where he was welcomed by a crowd of more than 100,000 eager Indians at the 'Namaste, Trump' event. From there he flew to Agra to visit the iconic Taj Mahal and then on to Delhi where the president met Indian officials and business leaders.
His official engagements coincided with violent clashes between groups that have been demonstrating for and against the CAA, which have killed at least 18 people and injured another 186 in days of violence.
