According to protesting students, when they reached Mata Mandir, police began a lathi charge against them around 4:30 pm and deployed tear gas to disperse them.
As the protest erupted into violence by 4:30 pm, protesters were pushed back from Sarai Jullena and New Friends Colony, and Jamia’s campus came under siege by 6:30 pm with teargas shells being thrown inside and police raiding the canteen and mosque.
By 6.15 pm, the entire stretch from Sukhdev Vihar to Jamia Millia Islamia station, which is located right outside the campus, was taken over by protesters.
