Bandh turns violent

By CORRESPONDENT

MIRZA, Jan 25 � With the Panchayat poll already announced, the second day of the 72-hour Rabha Hasang bandh, called by Rabha Hasang Joint Movement Committee (RHJMC), turned violent today as supporters of the bandh torched a three-wheeler at Bhalukdubi and ransacked shops at Daraka near Goalpara.

Sources said that hundreds of bandh supporters ransacked some shops at Boko when some persons opposed to the bandh tried to open their shops and had allegedly attacked some bandh supporters. Police, however, soon managed to quell further escalation of violence.

It may be mentioned here that activists of the Non-Tribal Security Forum (NSF) took out a bike rally in protest against the bandh yesterday at Boko in Kamrup district. However, there was no report of any major violence yesterday except for the burning of a motorcycle at Goroimari near Goalpara. The NSF had also yesterday asked the businessmen of Boko area to keep their shops and other business establishments open.
