The All Assam Students Union (AASU) on Saturday demanded a probe into the killing of five people in police firing during the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests in the state last year.

During an anti-CAA protest organized by the Sivasagar unit of AASU in the district, AASU activists demanded that the state government conduct a judicial inquiry and punish those who involved in the killing of the five youths.

They also paid tributes to the five martyrs during the occasion.

“If the BJP government does not repel CAA, we along with the people of the state will continue with the large scale protests across the state,” said general secretary of Sivasagar unit of AASU, Samiram Phukan.

Shouting slogans against the present government, the participants protested by playing different traditional musical instruments like khol, taal, daba and sankha.

Moreover, the Lakhimpur unit of AASU and Kriskak Mukti Sangram Samity (KMSS) also organized similar protests in North Lakhimpur on Saturday.

The AASU leadership had also recently said that they will continue to fight against the controversial CAA both in court and on the streets till it is repelled.
