New Delhi: Police on Sunday urged anti-Citizenship Act protesters to maintain calm and peace as violence grips Delhi. The officers said that peaceful agitation after "due permission" will not be stopped.

"We request students to remain calm and peaceful. If they have any problem call our control rooms. Don't give shelters to unwanted elements. No one stopping them going for peaceful demonstrations after due permissions," a police source said.

Police said that the situation was under control and they have detained some of the people who had allegedly indulged in arson and vandalism during the protest. They said police entered the Jamia university campus to only control the situation, after protesters indulged in violence near New Friends' Colony area in south Delhi on Sunday afternoon.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast) Chinmoy Biswal said four buses and two police vehicles were torched during the protest, adding six policemen were also injured.

He said stones were pelted from inside the varsity at police personnel, forcing them to use teargas to disperse the "violent mob".

Biswal said some people have been detained but did not give details.

In the wake of violent protest against the amended citizenship law in south Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also appealed people not to indulge in violence.

The Jamia Teachers' Association also condemned the arson and appealed to students to stay away from such "direction-less" protest led by local political leaders.

The JMI students have disassociated themselves from the violence. "We have time and again maintained that our protests are peaceful and non-violent. We stand by this approach and condemn any party involved in the violence. We have maintained clam even when students have been lathi-charged and some women protesters have been badly beaten up. Media personal are a witness to these events," the JMI students said in a statement.
