A small group of protesters defy the curfew and attempt to gather at Guwahati’s Latasil playground — a venue for sporting events as well as Bihu celebrations. Police act quickly and push the crowd back. Soon, another group emerges from a bylane to join the first group. The protesters refuse to budge despite police’s appeal. The law-enforcers lathicharge.
