Event

A shutdown strike is scheduled to take place in Cachar District (Assam State) on Saturday, November 7.

Advice

Those in Assam State are advised to monitor developments regarding the protests, avoid all protests and political gatherings due to the risk of disruptions and unrest, and heed any directives issued by local authorities.
