Paralyzing bandh in Karbi Anglong

Normal life comes to a grinding halt in Karbi Anglong district from Saturday morning following the 24 hour district bandh demanding action against the rapist security personnel.

Roads are wearing a desert look. Schools and colleges, shops and markets, banks and offices are remaining closed under the impact of the bandh that began at 5 in the morning.

The bandh is peaceful so far and there is no report of any untoward incident during the bandh. Altogether 11 local organizations in the hills district called the bandh demanding immediate arrest and punishment to the army personnel involved in the rape incident.
