NEW DELHI: Ten people with criminal background have been arrested on Tuesday for their alleged involvement in the violence near Jamia Millia Islamia University in Delhi, but none were students from the varsity.

Police said that the accused were arrested on Monday.

According to media reports, the accused were identified through videos taken during the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protest at JMI on Sunday. Interrogation is on and police are also trying to identify other accused in the case who were involved in instigating violence.

At the university on Sunday police entered the campus and also used force, following protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act, that led to violence and arson in which four DTC buses, 100 private vehicles and 10 police bikes were damaged.

The situation remained tense in the university premises on Tuesday as protesters, including students and local residents, converged outside the varsity holding tricolour and placards to continue their demonstration against CAA and NRC.

Braving freezing cold, they took out small marches outside the varsity, shouting slogans against the government.

This is the second consecutive day of peaceful protests after the demonstration on Sunday turned violent.
