Lucknow/IBNS: The protest against the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Act reached Lucknow on Monday with students of Nadwa college getting engaged in a face-off with police, throwing stones at them at a time north-east, West Bengal and Delhi are on the boil over the same issue.

The students were seen hurling stones at police from behind the closed college gate.

Police said the stone pelting continued for 30 seconds but the situation is now under control with students going back to their classrooms.

The protesting students had also raised slogans in support of Delhi's Jamia Milia University students who were assaulted by Delhi police on Sunday evening.

The protest by the Jamia students against the new citizenship law in the national capital on Sunday took an ugly turn when demonstrators attempted to march towards arterial south Delhi roads and were stopped by the police.

The police reportedly resorted to lathi-charge and fired tear gas shells as protesters allegedly started to pelt stones and smash vehicles in the area.

Police said at least four DTC buses were set on fire by the agitators.

Following the clashes, the police entered the Jamia Milia University campus and detained several students. While 35 were detained at Kalkaji police station, 16 were detained at the New Friends Colony (NFC) police station near the varsity. The students were later released.

Students from various institutions- Jawaharlal Nehru University, Aligarh Muslim University, Benaras Hindu University, Jadavpur University held protests against the assault on the Jamia agitators.
