The Union Home Ministry on Tuesday received a report from Delhi Police on the clash between lawyers and police at the Tis Hazari court complex in which at least 20 security personnel and several advocates were injured, officials said. 

It is a factual report in which the Delhi Police has given details of the circumstances leading to the incident and the action taken after it, a Home Ministry official said.

It does not cover what happened after Saturday, including the incident on Monday, when a group of lawyers purportedly assaulting a policeman outside the Saket court was caught on camera, he said. 

Following the incidents, hundreds of police personnel gathered in protest outside the police headquarters in Delhi on Tuesday.

Holding placards that read "We are human in police uniforms" and "Protectors Need Protection", the protesting police personnel gathered outside the police headquarters at ITO and urged their seniors to stand with them to save the honour of the uniform.
