Photos: A week later, timeline of the Delhi riots by HT photographers

With 47 people dead and over 350 injured, the violent clashes between pro and anti-CAA protestors have been among the worst the capital has seen in decades. By February 25, the violence had spread on either side of the Jaffrabad main road. In the neighbourhood, Maujpur, Chand Bagh, Kardampuri, Bhajanpura, Gokalpuri, Khajuri Khas, Yamuna Vihar and Brijpuri were also affected. Hindustan Times photographers were at most spots starting the first night of violence, bringing a visual account of the violence and its aftermath on a daily basis.
