The clashes at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) started after the agitation against the bill by the students of Jamia Millia Islamia University on Sunday.

Sixty students of the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) were injured as clashes broke out between the students and the police during the protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) bill at the University gate.

After the protest, the administration announced closure of the university till January 5, 2020.

AMU Registrar Abdul Hamid said the police entered the campus late Sunday night and clashes were reported from inside. “Hostels are being evacuated,” he said.

Tension remained high at the epicenter of the unrest in Assam state’s biggest city, Guwahati, with a fresh demonstration expected on Sunday over the legislation even as some shops opened amid an easing of the curfew during the day.

The legislation, passed by the national parliament, allows New Delhi to grant citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants who entered India from three neighbouring countries on or before December 31, 2014 – but not if they are Muslim.

In Assam, three people died in hospital after being shot, while another died when a shop he was sleeping in was set on fire and a fifth after he was beaten up during a protest, officials said.

Train services were also suspended in some parts of the east on Sunday after violence in eastern West Bengal state, with demonstrators torching trains and buses.

The worsened situation of the city has already led Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to cancel a planned visit to India from Sunday.
