NEW DELHI, Dec 13: A clash between the students of Jamia Millia Islamia University and Delhi Police broke out on Friday when the former were taking out a march to protest against the Citizenship Act from the university campus to the parliament.
The march, which was announced by the teacher's association of Jamia Millia Islamia, was joined by over 1,000 students. The Delhi Police, however, had put barricades across the road halting their progress.
"The students started jumping the barricades which led to a physical clash between the police and the students and the situation escalated from there onwards," Majid Alam, a former student of the university, said.
"The police used tear gas which made the situation chaotic. A few even got injured," he added.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMCR) closed entry and exit at Patel Chowk and Janpath metro stations.
"As advised by Delhi Police, entry & exit at Patel Chowk and Janpath have been closed. Trains will not be halting at these stations," DMRC said on twitter. The march was called to express opposition against the controversial Citizenship Act.
