Bandh paralyzes normal life

Normal life comes to a grinding halt on Friday following the 12 hour statewide bandh in protest against Adivasi carnage and police firing in Sonitpur district.

Roads across the state are deserted as the vehicles are refusing to ply. Schools and colleges, shops and markets, banks and offices are remaining closed under the impact of the total bandh called by the various Adivasi organizations.

The bandh began from 6 in the morning which would end at 6 in the evening. Security forces the Adivasi dominated areas are patrolling on the streets to thwart any trouble mongering attempts.

The Adivasi organizations called the bandh in protest against the serial attack by NDFB-S carnage where over 70 people were killed in Kokrajhar and Sonitpur districts on Tuesday evening.
