After Jamia, AMU students attempt riots, UP Police to evacuate campus

The police stated that despite the proctoral team's attempts, many students had scaled the gates, and had come outside to clash with the police at AMU circle. Another video showed the police warning the students not to resort to violence and breach orders of unlawful assembly.
