Protesters pelted stones on police in Delhi’s Seelampur

Clashes broke out on Tuesday during a protest against the Citizenship Law at Seelampur area of the National Capital where angry protesters poured into streets and threw stones at policemen.

In view of protests, the entry and exit gates at seven metro stations have been shut.

According to the sources, the protests began peacefully but took the violent turn later.

Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court directed all the petitioners raising allegations of police excesses on students protesting against the new citizenship law at Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University, to approach jurisdictional High Courts first.

The violence came two days after a protest march by students of the Jamia Millia University on Sunday turned violent.
