According to reports, the clash broke out between the protesters and Delhi Police after Delhi Police interrupted them and soon after the march towards Parliament. The Police had stopped the protesters from marching forward as the Jamia students’ permission to carry out the rally had been denied. However, the students declined to return and clash broke out.

The students said that they had the right to march towards the Parliament and that they would not return. The students, in retaliation, railed against the police and jumped barricades.
