India Blooms News Service

Guwahati, July 21 (IBNS) : At least three students were killed and over 20 others injured in when then police opened firing to quell a mob, which tried to set ablaze a government office and damaged vehicles and shops, in Assam's Barpeta district on Wednesday, police said.


More than 4000 students led by All Assam Minority Students Union (AAMSU) took to the streets of Barpeta town, protesting the government proceedings of updating National Register of Citizens (NRC).

"Suddenly, the protesters became violent and attacked private vehicles, shops and tried to set ablaze the district magistrate office," a senior police official said.

''The security forces first resorted to baton charge and then opened fire in the air. But the mob refused to stop violence. Police had to open fire to disperse the mob. Three protesters were killed and over 20 others injured,'' he added.

The injured persons were admitted to Barpeta Civil Hospital.

The mob damaged at least 20 private vehicles and 28 shops, the official added.

The AASU is demanding cancelation of the process of updating NRC, whichhas been undertaken as a pilot project in Barpeta district. This process of updating NRC needs citizens to attach some documents as a proof of their Indian citizenship.
