Prohibitory order under Section 144 CrPC has been clamped for an indefinite period at Tripura's Madhabbari and adjacent areas, where at least seven persons were injured when Citizenship Bill protesters clashed with police on Tuesday, according to a police official.
Sub-divisional police Officer (SDPO) Prankrishna Das said the police launched a search operation at Madhabbari and Dasharambari in Jirania police station of West Tripura district since Tuesday night during which one country made gun and a machete were recovered.
"The situation is completely under control now," the SDPO told PTI.
Assam Rifles and state police personnel were also patrolling the areas to avoid any untoward situation, he said.
The seven injured, some with gunshot wounds, in Tuesday's incident included a Tripura State Rifles (TSR) personnel and six Twipra Student Federation (TSF) members who had blocked the Assam-Agartala National Highway at Madhabbari area to oppose the Bill, the SP said.
The TSF member, identified as Sumit Debbarma, who received bullet injury on his back would be shifted to Kolkata due to deterioration of his condition, Dr Sulakkhana Mitra of the Trauma Care Centre in G B Pant Hospital said on Wednesday.
"Five injured, including one TSR jawan, are admitted at G B Pant Hospital and one other is being treated at a local hospital in Jirania subdivision," Mitra said.
NESO, a joint platform of eight student organisations, including the TSF, had called for 11-hour Northeast bandh on Tuesday to protest against the move of the central government to introduce Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 in Parliament.
