The Trinamool Congress alleged on Thursday that members of the party’s delegation on a two-day visit to Assam to assess the situation after the release of the complete draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) were prevented from leaving the airport in the northeastern state’s Silchar and were even beaten up.

The eight-member delegation reached the airport on Thursday around 2pm to attend a citizen’s convention in Silchar and was also supposed to visit Nagaon and Guwahati.

Six MPs Sukhendu Sekhar Ray, Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Ratna De Nag, Nadimul Haque, Arpita Ghosh and Mamata Thakur and Bengal urban development minister Firhad Hakim and MLA Mahua Moitra are part of the delegation.
