Total bandh hits Raha hard

Normal life in Raha, the name of a historic area in the central Assam district of Nagaon remains heavilly disrupted  on Monday following a local bandh call by the former ULFA in protest against the recent attack on a few of their colleagues at Panigaon. 

Roads in this entire sub urban area wore a deserted look from 5 in thr morning as vehicles refused to ply.

Shops and markers, schools and colleges, banks and offices remained closed under the impact  of the bandh call which began at 5 in the morning. 

Apprehending stray incidents, the security forces are patrolling on thr roads from  early in the morning. The bandh supporters in many places are moving to enforce the call. There is no report of any incident.
