Protests in New Delhi against a controversial citizenship law turned violent Sunday when police entered a university campus and used tear gas against students demonstrating.
Students at Jamia Millia Islamia University reported police firing tear gas in their library and beating up students with batons before sealing all campus gates. At least two dozen students are currently being treated at a Delhi hospital.
Student organizers blamed outsiders for the violence, saying in a statement that they only endorsed peaceful, nonviolent protests.
Earlier in the day, three buses in New Delhi were set on fire. Police said six officers were injured in the melee.
