Normal life in Raha in the central Assam district of Nagaon remained paralyzed on Monday following a 12 hour local bandh call by the former rebels in protest against the recent attack on a few of their colleagues at Panigaon.
Roads in this entire sub urban area wore a deserted look from 5 in the morning for 12 hours as vehicles refused to ply. Shops and markers opened on at 5 in the evening.
“The bandh was peaceful and there was report of any untoward incident during this period.
Apprehending stray incidents, we have deployed security forces from early in the morning,” said a district administration official.
A trader along with a few of his associates severally assaulted a team of former rebels as they were raising funds to feed the flood hit people.
