ULFA bandh total, disrupts normal life in Assam

A 12-hour statewide Assam is disrupting normal life in the state on Thursday. Called by the United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA), the bandh began at 5 in the morning which will end at 5 in the after noon. During this period, except schools, colleges and hospitals, all government and semi government establishments are remaining closed. Barring the school buses and polic and army jeeps, other vehicles are off from the streets. Our sources in several district headquerters have informed that the bandh is total and by and large peaceful. Notably, the proscribed militant outfit called in the 12 hour bandh alleging cold blooded murder of two 28th battalion cadres in Nagaon recently in the name of encounters. Meanwhile, the Assam government has instructed its employees to attend their duties at any cost to avoid action.
