Under the campaign against child-marriages, arrests in the state of Assam continued for the fifth day in a row, and with 4, 074 FIR registered, 2528 people have been arrested. Despite protest demonstrations against the campaign, the government’s stance has been colossal. In the meanwhile, a large number of scared people have postponed their children’s proposed marriages, and the relatives have been sent the information about the marriages getting delayed.
Because of the fear of insult, even though those who have postponed the marriages are not revealing their names, but the cases of hotel and marriage site cancellations have been confirmed in four different places in Guwahati alone.
While a large number of people in the state are postponing marriages, many others are running around in order to get details like name and age corrected in their documents. Apart from this, there are also women, who are running around to improvise their documents in order to prove themselves of being adults during their time of marriage.
