New Delhi, April 20

The Delhi Police, investigating the Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) violence and the recent riot cases, today claimed that arrests in connection with the two incidents were made after analysis of forensic evidence.

The police took to its official Twitter handle to make the claim after several Bollywood personalities issued a statement on Sunday, raising their voice against the arrest of students and activists for protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act. They also demanded their release.

Even civil rights groups like Hum Bharat Ke Log had earlier reported to have condemned the arrest of two JMI students and accused the police of “abusing the lockdown to silence those who oppose government policies.” — TNS
