Kejriwal’s reaction came minutes after violence erupted near Jamia Nagar where police used batons and tear gas on anti-Citizenship Act protesters. Three buses were also set on fire in the area, following which Jamia Millia Islamia, Sukhdev Vihar and Ashram metro stations on Magenta and Pink lines were shut.
