Zealous cops go on overdrive to ward off ‘black’ clothes in Assam

Jan 30, 2019 20:06 IST

In a bid to thwart protests involving ‘black flags’, overzealous security personnel stopped local residents, who were wearing black clothes, from entering a public meeting where chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal addressed a gathering at Baranga in Biswath district of Assam on Tuesday. Despite any order or notice, as confirmed by the CM himself later, cops were stopping almost anybody with a piece of clothing that featured the black colour. Things came to such a pass that a mother had to get her child’s black jacket removed as a precautionary measure to be allowed entry into the meeting.
