    Anti-Citizenship Bill Protesters Pelt Stones At Assam CM, Union Min’s Houses

    Curfew was imposed in Dibrugarh on the night of December 11th, 2019 and will be in force till further orders

    Minutes after the Rajya Sabha passed the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019, stones were pelted at the house of Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal in Dibrugarh on December 11th, 2019 night amidst large-scale violent protests against Bill in the state. Windowpanes were damaged in stone-pelting.

    Earlier in the day, Sonowal was stuck at the Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in Borjhar for hours as seething students took to the streets to oppose the Bill. The situation within a matter of minutes turned uncontrollable as protesters started pouring in from all sides towards the Janata Bhawan, Dispur Last Gate.

    Assam smouldered with fresh protests on December 11th, 2019 rocking several parts of the state including Guwahati.  

    A large number of agitated students blocked the road near the Janata Bhawan and pulled down the barricade erected on the arterial G S Road, provoking police action. Police used blank firing, water cannons, fired teargas shells and baton-charged protesters, who fought back.

    In the evening, curfew was imposed in Guwahati for an indefinite period. Curfew was imposed in Dibrugarh on the night of December 11th, 2019 and will be in force till further orders. The Army has also been deployed in Tinsukia and Dibrugarh districts.

    At 7 pm, mobile Internet services of all carriers across 10 of the 33 districts in Assam were suspended for 24 hours.
