Hundreds of people, especially women continue their protests against the CAA at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi since December 15. Huddled in blankets with kids as young as 20 days old, people from all walks of life have been protesting at Shaheen Bhag, undeterred by the falling temperatures and pressure from officials to vacate the premises.
