An order issued by Pankaj Chamua, Additional District Magistrate of Bongaigaon district on Sunday said, “In view of prevailing situation and incidents of protest rallies in several parts of the country by some organisations including few incidents of violence which took place in Ranchi, Cooch Behar, Kolkata, Jammu and Kashmir, Kanpur, Prayagraj likelihood such incidents in the district cannot be ruled out.”
