This is very urgent from the army confrontation. The Army has advised citizens to be cautious of false information being spread on social media about their activities in the North East. The Army has flagged fake news and misleading information that is being spread by suspicious individuals.
The exact situation reveals that the long queues were seen outside shops at several places, including Dispur, Uzan Bazar, Chandmari, Silpukhuri, and Zoo Road. Auto-rickshaws and cycle-rickshaws were moving across the city. However, buses were off roads. Petrol pumps in the city have also opened with vehicles waiting in lines to refuel. The curfew has been relaxed from 9 am to 4 pm, a police spokesperson said. Police are using loudspeakers to inform the public about the relaxation, Army officials added. However, schools and offices remained shut.
After the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was cleared by Parliament, violent protests broke out in the city and other parts of the state with agitators engaging in pitched battles with the police, forcing the administration to impose a curfew.
A curfew was imposed in Guwahati in Assam, which was relaxed between 9 am and 4 pm today.
Eight columns (comprising around 70 personnel) of the Army and the Assam Rifles have been deployed in Assam. The Army was called out on Wednesday as protestors turned violent.
Till now, a total of eight columns of the Army have been demanded which included one in Bongaigaon, one in Morigaon, four columns in Guwahati and two in Sonitpur said by Defence Public Relation Officer Lt Col P Khongsai.
