On September 24, student groups and activists protested outside the Assam Bhawan in New Delhi. The demonstrations took place a day after horrifying visuals of police brutality emerged from an eviction drive in the Dharrang district of Assam.
The visuals also show a photographer, said to be associated with the district administration, assaulting a man who appears to have a bullet wound in his chest.
Within minutes of their arrival, protesters were detained by the Delhi police and taken to the Mandir Marg Police Station.
The Assam government has ordered a judicial probe into the circumstances pertaining to the eviction drive in Dharrang.
