Media reports claimed that thousands of people opposing the Citizenship Act blocked roads and attacked some shops near Sankarel railway station.

A senior Railway Protection Force official said, “The protesters entered the railway station complex in the afternoon and set the ticket counter on fire. When RPF personnel tried to stop them, they were also beaten up”.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has appealed to the protesters not to take up law in their hands and get involved in any kind of violence. She also assured the protesters that the Citizenship Act and the proposed country-wide NRC will not take effect in the state.
