Uneasy calm prevailed in localities under the old city's Kotwali and Delhi Gate police stations here on Monday, a day after arson and group clashes.

Most shops remained closed in violence-hit areas but there were no fresh clashes on Monday. District authorities were seen persuading traders to open for business, and the situation improved by the evening.

"No untoward incident has been reported from any place since Sunday evening," Agra zone Additional Director General Police (ADGP) Ajay Anand told PTI.

On Sunday, over a dozen people needed medical treatment after stone-pelting between groups of protesters and clashes with police.
