A shutdown strike is scheduled to take place in Cachar District (Assam State) on Saturday, November 7. The strike has been organized by the All Cachar Karimganj Hailakandi Students' Association (ACKHSA) and is being held to condemn the recent death of a Cachar District resident that was allegedly killed by 'infiltrators' from Mizoram State. Tensions between the two regions are elevated due to the dispute. The shutdown strike is set to last for 12 hours from 05:00 (local time) on Monday.
Additionally, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) plans to hold protests in opposition to the strike. Clashes between members of the two groups cannot be ruled out.
Additional security force personnel, road closures, and access restrictions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the events over the coming days. Clashes between security forces and protesters cannot be ruled out.
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.
