Over 10 people have been killed, hundreds injured in New Delhi riots, Reuters reported.

Clashes over a new citizenship law began over the weekend. Violence erupted again in many areas of northeast Delhi on Tuesday.

Indian capital turned out to be the center of protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act, which makes it easier for non-Muslims from three neighboring Muslim countries to obtain Indian citizenship.

Indian Deputy Interior Minister Kishan Reddy earlier told Reuters that the violence was a conspiracy to defame India, during a visit by US President Donald Trump.

However, some of those who protested against the citizenship law claimed that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and its supporters, were persecuting Muslims and inciting violence.

The representative of one of the hospitals in New Delhi reported that 13 people were killed, over 150 injured were hospitalized, and many received bullet wounds. Another hospital reported two dead and 200 injured.
