Students of Jamia Millia Islamia University in Delhi have resumed the demonstration Monday morning accusing the police of using excessive force. The university's vice chancellor condemned Sunday's police action and said they would be filing a court case against the police and demanding a high-level inquiry. But officials said they were trying to bring the situation under control after buses and fire engines were set alight. The escalation comes as there are concerns over the new law, which critics say is anti-Muslim, while others fear large scale migration.
