Guwahati curfew lifted, broadband services resumed after days of CAA protest

The Assam government lifted the curfew in Guwahati, imposed on December 11 in the wake of protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, from 6 am on Tuesday.
 
Broadband internet service, which had suspended, was also restored across the state from Tuesday morning. However, there has been no statement on the resumption of mobile internet services.
 
The decision to lift curfew in Guwahati came after the state government reviewed the law-and-order situation in the state, chaired by chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, on Monday.
 
Assam’s director general of police Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta said the situation was better in the state, where four people killed in violence during the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in the last one week.
 
“Four people got killed in police action, unfortunately. The situation had become such that the police had to fire in order to save more people and property,” Mahanta said.
