Paralyzing bandh in Barak

Normal life comes to a grinding halt in Barak valley districts on Friday following the 12 hour bandh in protest against the arrest of Siddique Ali Ahmed.

Vehicles are not plying on the roads from 6 in the morning while the businessmen down their shutters till 6 in the evening. 

The former minister’s supporters, in large numbers, came out to the roads to enforce the bandh. There is no report of any untoward incident during the bandh hours.

The former minister from Karimganj was sent to jail in an assault case on Thursday triggering clash of police and his supporters.
