Guwahati: Citizens of Guwahati, under the aegis of several activist groups and NGOs, braved the rains on Sunday to register their protest and anger against the Assam government, police and the media on the recent molestation case.
Hundreds of people gathered at the Dighalipukhuri area since morning and later took out a rally demanding immediate arrest of all the culprits and ensuring justice to the victim.
Nari Nirjatan Aikya Mancha, Nari Mukti Sangram Samiti, Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti, India Against Corruption, Bharat Swabhiman and several other NGOs participated in the rally.
The protesters said they were scheduled to meet the three members of the National Commission of Women (NCW), currently in the city to probe into the case, but they "refused" to meet the protesters.
"The members had assured us that they would come to the rally site to meet us but even when we went to meet them at the hotel the police said that they had already left," RTI activist and KMSS Secretary General Akhil Gogoi.
The protesters were demanding protection for women, immediate action against all the culprits, action against police for their alleged delay in coming to the aid of the people and action against a journalist of a local news channel for allegedly instigating the attack.
