Citizenship Bill protests LIVE: Shinzo Abe postpones visit to Guwahati
President Ram Nath Kovind gives assent to Citizenship Amendment Bill as thousands of troops brace for another day of protests in the Northeast.
India's northeast states braced for another day of protests against the Citizenship Amendment Bill, after at least two people were killed in Guwahati when police fired at protesters on Thursday.
The law seeks to grant Indian nationality to Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jains, Parsis and Sikhs who fled Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan before 2015. But thousands of protesters in Assam, which shares a border with Bangladesh, say the measure would open the region to a flood of foreign migrants.
Mobile internet and SMS services were blocked across Meghalaya for two days, and an indefinite curfew imposed in parts of its capital city Shillong after protests against the Bill, which President Ram Nath Kovind singed into law Thursday night.
