Normal life was affected in central Assam's North Cachar Hills district following a BJP sponsored 10-hour district bandh today in support of their seven-point charter of demands.

Business establishments, educational institutions, offices, banks remained closed, while vehicles kept off the roads, official sources said.

Train services, however, remained unaffected by the bandh which began from 5 am.

The bandh was called by the BJP district unit demanding among others peace talks with both factions of militant outfits Dima Halam Daogah and DHD-Jewel and restoration of the NC Hills Autonomous Council.
