DCP North West Vijayanta Arya said, some protesters were staging a sit-in outside the Model Town police station to put undue pressure on the police on Friday and were trying to give the incident a different color. Despite demonstrating the facts related to the case, some protesters remained adamant, after which a case was registered.
