Normal life partially affected in Assam's NC Hills district
Normal life was partially affected in Assam's North Cachar Hills district following a 24-hour bandh called by the NC Hills Indigenous Women Forum (NCIWF).
Official sources said there was no untoward incident from any part of the district so far but security has been tightened and a strict vigil was being maintained.
The bandh has been called by the NCIWF to protest against police firing on bandh supporters here on April 9 in which five supporters, including a woman, were injured.
The April 9 bandh was called to demand bifurcation of NC Hills district into two autonomous districts following its renaming as Dima Hasao district.
All schools, colleges, educational institutions remained closed and vehicular traffic was thin, sources added.
