Paralyzing Bajrang bandh ends

 The Bajrang Dal sponsored 12 hour Assam bandh ended in the evening disrupting normal life across the state on Friday. Roads wore a deserted look. Shops and markets, schools and colleges remained closed under the impact of the bandh called in protest against Badruddin Ajmal’s alleged nexus with fundamentalist groups in Bangladesh.

Government offices hardly had any functionings as the employees, mostly, could not attend the offices because of skeleton bus services in Guwahati.

Police detained at least 150 bandh supporters across the state when they tried to block the vehicle movement by burning tyres on the roads.

Several others forced the businessmen to down their shutters till the evening. Such incidents have been reported from Baihata Chariali, North Kamrup, Morigaon, Jorhat, Sivasagar and Tezpur. Bajrang Dal called bandh the in protest against AIUDF president Badaruddin

Ajmal’s alleged link with fundamentalist forces in Bangladesh. The alleged nexus came to light when a satellite channel beamed the story citing an old and controversial intelligence report.

Jintul Talukdar adds from Barpeta: The 12 hour bandh ended 12 hours after heavily disrupting the normal life in the entire district. All schools and colleges along with the government and private offices remained unattended on Thursday
