According to reports, the protesters were coming towards Guwahati to take part in the protest rally organised by the organisation at the Last Gate area in the city demanding to scrap of the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB).
Police reportedly blocked the seven buses carrying the protesters on NH-17. Police detained the protesters from seven buses over the NH-17. “The police have blocked us from going towards Guwahati. This is undemocratic,” said a member of KMSS. “We strongly oppose the CAB and we will continue our opposition till the bill is scrapped,” added another.
