Violence mars 12-hr Karbi Anglong bandh

Normal life remained totally paralysed amid sporadic incidents of violence during the 12-hour bandh called by Karbi Students' Youth Council in Karbi Anglong district on Saturday. Bandh supporters set on fire a truck carrying oil in drums in the Diphu-Lumding road this afternoon after forcing the driver and handyman to get down. Shops and business establishments remained closed and vehicular traffic was minimal. KSYC gave the bandh call in protest against alleged encroachment by Meghalaya. They alleged that Meghalaya government has set up police posts and schools in land belonging to Assam.
