    Assam MP Gaurav Gogoi demands Judicial Probe into the 5 deaths during Anti CAA protest

    Gogoi said that all the deceased- Sam Stafford, Dipanjal Das, Abdul Alim, Ishwar Nayak, and Dwijendra Panging were killed despite being unarmed

    GUWAHATI: Assam MP Gaurav Gogoi on Monday has urged the government to set up a judicial enquiry into the death of five persons who were killed during the anti CAA protest in Assam in December last year.

    Gogoi while presenting the matter in the Parliament said that the deceased persons were killed during a spontaneous street protest against the “Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA)” that broke out across the state of Assam in December 2019.

    He said that all the deceased- Sam Stafford, Dipanjal Das, Abdul Alim, Ishwar Nayak, and Dwijendra Panging were killed despite being unarmed.

    The MP said, “The people of Assam do not accept the CAA because this violates the Assam Accord and makes the NRC toothless. The CAA is unconstitutional as it violates the basic structure of the Indian Constitution and against articles 14 and 21. Therefore, I urge the Government to set up a judicial inquiry into the death of five young martyrs during the anti CAA protests in Assam.”
