The same pic was shared by a Facebook user who said that the woman was held for opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and NRC. The user also shared a selfie of a couple with their infant.

The reverse search of the image found its origin. The image was first shared on the internet in 2013. Hence, it cannot be from Anti-CAA protests. The viral image was posted by a blog called controappuntoblog.org on January 13, 2013. According to the blog, the image is from Argentina.

With the traces of image back from 2013, it can be concluded that the picture has nothing to do with CAA and NRC protests. Hence, the claim of Anti-NRC protester breastfeeding baby through the fence is false.
