Thousands of people defied curfew in Guwahati and took to the streets in protest, opposing the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill or CAB that was passed in parliament on Wednesday. The army has been deployed in four areas of Assam as thousands protested on Wednesday evening, clashing with policemen and plunging the state into chaos. Amid violent protests in the northeast, the contentious bill passed parliament last evening after being cleared by the Rajya Sabha with 125 voting for it and 99 against.
