The Delhi Police has arrested a local leader in connection with the violence that took place in Jamia Nagar and New Friends Colony in December.

The Delhi Police Crime Branch on Saturday arrested Ashu Khan, a local leader, for instigating violence amid anti-CAA protests in the Jamia Nagar area on December 15.

Two cases had been filed against Khan in both Jamia Nagar and New Friends Colony police stations.

He was presented before a court today and sent to 2-day police remand.

According to police sources, Ashu Khan had also assembled a mob when the police evicted Shaheen Bagh protestors from the spot last month owing to the coronavirus outbreak.

On December 15 last year, a protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act near Jamia Millia Islamia turned violent, with demonstrators pelting stones at police and setting public buses and private vehicles on fire.

Police later entered the university, firing teargas shells and baton-charging students.
