Lucknow/IBNS: The Lucknow Police have filed three criminal cases against dozens of women including Urdu poet Munawwar Rana's daughters- Sumaiya and Fauzia- who have been protesting against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) at the city's iconic clock tower since Friday night, media reports said.

The women including Rana's daughters have been accused of "rioting" and "unlawful assembly".

About 50 women started the protests at the clock tower on Friday night but the crowd swelled to thousands with time.

In the police complaints, about 100 unnamed protesters have also been accused of "disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant", "assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of duty", NDTV reported.

On Saturday night, the police were accused of taking away blankets from the protesters. However, the police denied such claims and said "blankets were seized after due process".
