Normal life in Guwahati came to a grinding halt on Thursday morning after an indefinite curfew was imposed in the city on Wednesday evening after anti-CAB protests turned violent.

Several vehicles in the city were set ablaze by the angry protesters, forcing the district administration to impose the curfew and call in the army.

Divider railings, police points etc were also damaged and set on fire in many places.

A tree was also uprooted to block the road in Nursery area of the RG Baruah Raod (read Zoo Road) in the city.

On Thursday morning, most of the streets bore a deserted look with vehicular traffic mostly remaining off the road.

Police were seen patrolling the roads and they urged everyone to remain indoors during the curfew period.

Educational institutions, business establishments, and other financial organisations were declared closed.

Scheduled examinations in the schools and colleges have also been postponed.
