Mumbai A group of students protested against the Citizens Amendment Act and the National Citizens Registry proposed during the first ODI between India and Australia here on Tuesday.

With white t-shirts, the students held banners that read ‘No CAA’, ‘No NPR’ and ‘NO NPC’. However, they left before the end of the Indian tickets at Wankhede Stadium.

They belonged to a group called Mumbai Against CAA. “There were 26 people in total and they were sitting on the side of the Vijay Merchant Pavilion. They themselves left the stadium when the Indian gates fell in a lot,” said Fawad Ahmad, who belongs to the group.

The social media were excited about the fact that security guards did not allow people in black clothes to enter the stadium for fear of protests, but a senior official of the Apex Council of the Cricket Association of Mumbai (MCA ) stated that said dictation was not issued.

“There were no dictates about any color, no posters of any kind were allowed inside the stadium, as it was the instruction of the local police,” said the MCA member.

In the first game, India’s starter, Shikhar Dhawan, hit half a century before Australia withdrew things to get India out of 255.
