The Convoy of BJP’s Assam State Unit President Ranjit Kumar Das was attacked by people protesting the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) on 10 December.
A video which has gone viral on social media shows hordes of people charging at the convoy of cars with sticks, forcing the convoy to shift into reverse and retreat.
Protesters also raised slogans decrying the government while stopping vehicles.

Reportedly, the incident took place near the Six Mile flyover in Assam's Guwahati city.
Protesting has intensified in the north-east region of the country amid the fears that the proposed legislation will destroy indigenous people’s identity in the region and inflate the unemployment level further, as the limited economic opportunities may be taken by refugees.
