Police used tear smoke and batons to disperse protesters who on Wednesday demanded the release of a youth arrested on Tuesday.

Dozens of protesters took to the streets in Maisuma near the Lal Chowk city centre forcing closure of markets as they threw stones at the police and paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers.

The protesters were demanding the release of a youth allegedly arrested by police on Tuesday.

Life was normal in the rest of the city.
