Bandh hits lower Assam districts

Normal life in lower Assam remains paralyzed because of the 48 hour bandh call by the Akrsu to protest police atrocities and replacement of Bongaigaon superintendent of police within 24 hours. Akrsu alleged that the police had arrived fully prepared to foil their blockade at Rakhaldubi tri-junction of NH 31 (C) and NH 31 in Bongaigaon district on Tuesday.
They said initially the police held a discussion with Akrsu leaders to end the blockade by 1pm. There were about 1,500 supporters at the venue. Dhubri district unit vice-president of Akrsu, Biswajit Singha, had also staged a blockade at Ratiadoh under Golokganj police station in the district. Vehicles remained off the road in the lower Assam districts and the impact was felt on NH 31 (C), NH 31 and a part of NH 37 with no traffic on the roads.
