Statewide bandh ends

The AGP-sponsored 12 hour statewide bandh ended as soonas the clock struck 5 in the evening. Backed by atleast 13 organizations, the bandh was total to be marred by a few untoward incidents.

Bandh supporters in many districts blocked the movement of vehicles by burning tyres while they vandalized many shops in some places.

Shops and markets, schools and colleges, banks and offices remained closed under the impact of the bandh. In Guwahati, ASTC was running its buses causing immense inconvenience for the commuters.

The bandh was called in protest against the police firing in Golaghat on Tuesday and Wednesday where three killed and several others sustained injury. //
