NEW DELHI: Assam Congress leader and Lok Sabha MP from Kaliabor Gaurav Gogoi has demanded the Centre to set up judicial inquiry to look into the deaths of five youths in the anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) agitation in Assam.
Expressing serious concern over the death of five youths of the state during the CAA movement, the Congress leader also said that the people of Assam do not accept the CAA because it violates the Assam Accord and makes the National Register of Citizens (NRC) toothless. Further, the Act is unconstitutional as it violates the basic structure of the Constitution and against Articles 14 and 21, he said.
Raising the issue in Parliament, Gogoi said that during the spontaneous agitation that broke out in Assam against the CAA, five unarmed youths – identified as Sam Stafford, Dipanjan Das, Abdul Alim, Ishwar Nayak and Dwijendra Pangin – died as a result of police firing.
