PATNA — More than 50 people were arrested and about a dozen injured in clashes with police in eastern India on Saturday in protests against attacks on migrants in the financial hub of Mumbai, police said.

Protesters vandalized railway stations, blocked rail and road traffic and caused shops to shut down in the eastern state of Bihar, as police struggled to control street violence for a sixth day in a row. “The protesters tried to take possession of a train engine and blocked railway lines but we have driven them away”, senior police official Rajesh Kumar told Reuters.
