Advocate Rebecca John, representing the accused, told the court that her clients are not required for the investigation as the police have themselves not sought for their remand but instead pleaded for the judicial custody.

The court asked the Delhi Police's Investigation Officer (IO) on what basis the arrests were made, to which he said that the accused had pelted stone on Deputy Commissioner of Police's (DCP) office and scores were also injured due to the attack.

The court had, on Saturday, remanded the accused to two-day judicial custody and were produced before the court today at the end of their remand period.

The police had also detained 40 persons for allegedly pelting stones at the police personnel during the protest.

Protests have erupted across the country against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and National Register of Citizens (NRC), which grants Indian citizenship to Hindu, Christian, Sikh, Buddhist and Parsi refugees from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh, who entered India on or before December 31, 2014.
