The Night of February 24th

Dispatch 2 from North-East Delhi Violence

Women survivors recount the horrors they experienced during the violence that erupted in Delhi’s North-East district between February 23 and 25. The death count stands at 53. In the destruction and arson, hundreds of homes were reduced to ashes and businesses ruined. Residents who, till a fortnight ago, lived in their homes in the National Capital of India are now languishing in hastily set up camps. Many still remain missing.

Here’s the second in our series of video dispatches by Ruhani Kaur of StoriesAsia.

StoriesAsia, a collective of independent journalists from 16 South Asian and Southeast Asian countries, seeks to replace the present-day parade of faceless numbers with humanising narrative nonfiction – a largely ignored journalistic genre in the region.
