Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said the situation in violence-hit Delhi was returning to normal.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an event at the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited in Bengaluru, Mr Singh said, "The situation in Delhi is becoming normal to a good extent."

He was responding to a query on the increasing toll in the riots in the national capital following protests against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act.

The Defence Minister, however, declined to reply to a question on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's demand for bringing in the Army to restore normalcy in Delhi.
