Assam Director General of Police (DGP) Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta told ANI, “136 cases have been registered so far and 190 protesters have been arrested. These were not normal democratic protesters but people who indulged in violence. Some conspirators have also been arrested, including some major leaders from various organisations.”
“We had detained over 3,000 protestors. Preventive detentions are also taking place. We allowed the youngsters to leave after a counselling session,” Mahanta added.
He further added that as of now the situation is under control.
The Assam High School TET examination 2019, also known as Medium TET for secondary level, will be held in five languages - Assamese, Hindi, Manipuri, Bodo, and Bengali.
