Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (South East) Gyanesh Kumar confirmed the arrest. A case under relevant Sections of the Indian Penal Code was registered, police said.

On Wednesday, several Dalit groups staged a protest against the demolition of the Ravidas temple in Tughlakabad on August 10 following a Supreme Court order. The demonstration turned violent late in the evening as protesters marched towards the temple, resorted to stone-pelting and used sticks to attack policemen who resorted to force to contain the crowd.
