    Police also had to fire in the air in several other areas of the city, including the Guwahati-Shillong (GS) Road which turned into a war zone as protestors vandalised shops, footpath railings, dividers, burnt tyres, torched vehicles and clashed with security forces.

    Police said they had to open fire in Lalung Gaon areas in Guwahati after stones were hurled by protesters on December 12th, 2019. At least four persons were injured in the shooting, as per reports.

    The Rajya Sabha on December 11th, 2019 approved the Bill, completing the legislative procedure for giving Indian citizenship to non-Muslim migrants from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.
