We had earlier reported about Assam BJP’s Tinsukia district president Lakheswar Moran being thrashed by a mob protesting against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill on January 30. Moran was there to attend a Lok Jagran Manch meeting, organised to tackle the misinformation surrounding the Amendment bill.
Moran was greeted with slogans and black flags shown by protestors at the event. Subsequently, the protest took a violent turn after some protesters started chasing the leader. Miscreants were seen throwing tyres and stones over the leader, and also manhandling him. In the wake of this, police intervened and safely escorted Moran, protecting from further violence.
