Police fired tear gas and struck demonstrators with batons in New Delhi, where thousands protested against new law that will give citizenship to non-Muslims fleeing religious persecution from several neighboring countries. The third day of what had been a peaceful demonstration descended into chaos Sunday afternoon: police broke into Jamia Millia Islamia University’s grounds, making arrests and forcing dozens of students to leave, tear gas has been used amid reports of clashes, and three buses were set on fire, police officials said.
