Crippling bandhs in Goalpara

 Normal life remained crippled in Goalpara and Kokrajhar districts when two separate bandhs rocked the districts which ended on Wednedsay evening.
Bandh supporters unleashed violence leaving many people injured. Several vehicles were damaged and set on fire and four people—a police officer and three bandh supporters—were injured during the 36-hour Goalpara district shutdown which concluded on Wednesday evening.

The bandh was called by the Coordination Committee of Non Rabhas from Tuesday morning. But only to be marred by a string of sporadic incidents of violence. Altogether 5 people including 2 policemen were injured when they clashed with a group of bandh supporters at Khorboja. Three bandh supporters were injured when police resorted to lathi charge and fired rubber bullets to quell the irate crowd.
