16-December-2019

An undeclared curfew has been imposed in Mau district after students, protesting against the new citizenship law, went on rampage, set vehicles on fire and threw stones at the police.

The cops also resorted to firing teargas shells and lathi-charged the protesters, reports said.

Director General of Police O.P. Singh said on Monday evening that curfew had not been imposed, but prohibitory orders were being strictly enforced.

"Since the protesters were not being allowed to collect at one place, there is no problem now," he said.

Students are staging protests to express their solidarity with students of Jamia Milia and Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).IANS
