Kendrapara: An eight-hour bandh is being observed today in Odisha’s Kendrapara district, excluding the poll-bound Patkura area, over firing at a businessman.
The bandh has been called by Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), Kendrapara Traders’ Association and Tinimuhani Puja Committee. Members of the associations blocked roads at various places in Kendrapara town this morning disrupting vehicular movement.
The agitators are demanding arrest of those involved in the firing incident. Two unidentified bike-borne miscreants had opened fire at Tinimuhani Bazaar Committee President Vivekananda Moharana near Gulnagar bridge on July 13 night while he was returning home on a motorcycle. The accused are yet to be apprehended.
