Massive protests in east India continue despite police crackdown and internet blackout

Agitated residents of the east Indian state of Assam came out in large number to protest, despite police and military crackdowns on their movements and a temporary internet blackout.

The latest footage shows protests that took place on December 12 in Assam's Guwahati city.

Visuals show where protesters have burned out the public buses while shouting slogans against the government.

Later footage also shows the state Chief Minister's vehicle being diverted by protesters.

The protests began on December 11, when the Indian government passed the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in both houses of the national parliament.

The bill allegedly grants citizenship to non-Muslim migrants emigrating into India from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
