A petrol bomb was hurled by an unidentified person near the protest site at Shaheen Bagh on Sunday where Muslim women have been on a sit-in for over three months against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
The protest has been curtailed to only a symbolic one with not more than 5 people present at a time due to Coronavirus outbreak.
A man riding a motorcycle is believed to have hurled petrol bomb at the protest site.
No injuries have been reported.
The incident took place at around 9.30 am, protesters said.
A police team has found five-six petrol-filled bottles at the site.
The protesting Muslim women have been leading the historic protest in national capital against CAA, NRC, and NPR for the last three months.
