A bandh was observed by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and other organisations here to protest against clashes at the Baltal base camp in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday. During the bandh, activists held demonstrations in major areas of the holy city. Several shops and business establishments remained shut.
According to the police, no untoward incident was reported anywhere. At least 37 persons, including a few security force personnel, were injured in the clash that broke out at the Baltal base camp on July 18 after a dispute between pony owners and community kitchen owners, which was followed by the alleged high-handedness of the CRPF personnel.
