A shocking video of Tripura policemen attacking an ambulance carrying two injured protesters went viral this week. The Northeastern states are witnessing protests against the Citizen Amendment Bill (CAB). This video validates the claim that the government is undertaking a violent crackdown of the protests. The people inside the ambulance, who were wounded in police firing can be seen crying for mercy. The Tripura Police has denied that such an incident has occurred. The brutal incident happened after six tribal youngsters were injured during a protest organised by the North East Students’ organisation against the CAB.
The Lok Sabha had passed the CAB on January amid strong protests from opposition parties.
