Gautam expressed his stand that any political leader who incites violence within his ranks should be held accountable, without taking in to account his party.
Kapil Mishra, a motor mouth BJP leader reportedly gave an ultimatum of 3 days for protestors to disperse, threatening to face terrible consequences if not obliging to his demand. Taking his words a group of Citizenship law supporters opened an attack on a gathering of women and children who were preparing a new dharna ground together with the Bhim Army near Gokulpuri.The situation was soon furled up to a violent riot in which 4 including an HC, lost their lives and several were injured.
