Sisodia, who is also the education minister of Delhi, said all internal examinations have been postponed by schools.

New Delhi: Amid violence over the amended citizenship law, the district administration here has sealed three borders adjoining northeast Delhi. Private and government schools in violence affected North East Delhi will continue to be closed on Wednesday, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia announced on Tuesday.

Sisodia, who is also the education minister of Delhi, said all internal examinations have been postponed by schools.

"In violence affected North East district, schools will be closed tomorrow as well. Internal examinations have been postponed. Have requested CBSE to postpone the board exam as well," Sisodia tweeted.

There was no response from the CBSE on whether the exam will be postponed or not.

Laal Bagh, DLF embankment road of Loni and Tulsi Niketan borders of Sahibabad which are adjacent to northeast Delhi have been barricaded, adding people have been advised not to use these routes to travel to Delhi.

Section 144 of CrPC has been imposed in the district. All the liquor vends and bars will remain closed from 4 to 10 pm whereas all bars in hotels and pubs will be shut in the district. Forces have been deployed in all the sensitive areas.

Smoke billowed in the air and mobs roamed unchecked through the streets, burning shops, pelting stones and threatening locals, as fresh violence tore through northeast Delhi, killing six more people on Tuesday and taking the toll in the communal clashes over the amended citizenship law to 11.

As tension smouldered in the national capital's northeast and the sun set over another restive day, violence cut a swathe through several localities, including Chand Bagh and Bhajanpura, with stones and other missiles hurled and shops set ablaze.
