Indian officials announced that East India Railways suspended its services completely on Monday between the state of West Bengal and the northeast of the country amid protests against the citizenship amendment law.

“The district of “Malda”, which is located near the state of West Bengal, is the last train station, according to the spokesman for the East India Railways, Nikhil Chakraborty, the spokesman for the East India Railway.

Mamata Banerjee, Chief Minister of West Bengal state, added that the decision came after some trains were set ablaze, as the movement of trains was stopped in several areas of the state.

The protesters against the Citizenship Amendment Act had arrived in West Bengal on Friday in a demand for the immediate repeal of the law, which had led to violence, and the death toll from protests between citizens and police in northeast India had risen to 6.

It is noteworthy that the “citizenship amendment law” which was ratified last week gives Indian citizenship to immigrants on condition that they are non-Muslims from three countries with a Muslim majority, if they face religious persecution in their country where many in the northeastern border states fear the influx of migrants and the persecution of Muslims.
