The violence had broken out in Pared, Nai Sadak, and Yateemkhana areas of the city on Friday when some people tried to force shopkeepers to bring down shutters to protest against Nupur Sharma’s remarks against Prophet Muhammad.

The identities of over 100 more accused have been established, DCP (East) Pramod Kumar said.
