We could track this image back to Oct 2017 claiming it to be from Syria. We can not confirm the location but given the time difference it’s certainly not from on going Anti CAB protests.
The image was tweeted on 1st October 2017

குடியுரிமை மசோதாவிற்கு எதிராக கலவரங்களை, நம் சகோதரர்கள் மீது கொடூரமாக நிகழ்த்துவது வேறு யாரும் அல்ல..
சட்டவிரோதமாக ஊடுருவி, பல ஆண்டுகளாகத் தங்கியிருக்கும் கயவர்கள் செய்த செயலை பாருங்கள்.

None of the three photos are related to ongoing anti-CAB protests
The photo of crying and bleeding toddler in blue frock is from a Train accident in Bangladesh on 12th Nove 2019
UNB, a Bangladesh News portal reported
“At least 16 passengers were killed and over 100 others injured in a fatal collision between two trains on Dhaka-Chattogram route in Mandbagh Railway Station in Kasba upazila early Tuesday.
The deadly collision between Dhaka-bound Turna Nishita Express from Chattogram and Chattogram-bound Udayan Express from Sylhet took place around 3am, said Deputy Commissioner Hayat-Ud-Dowllah Khan, who visited the spot right after the crash.
“So far, 16 people have died in the deadly accident, but the figure may go up further,” the DC added.”
