Guwahati: Normal life in Assam was affected Thursday during the bandh called by the NDA and several organisations including the opposition AGP to protest the hike in petrol prices.

Schools and Colleges were closed, many financial institutions were also closed and government offices reported thin attendance while vehicular traffic was off the road.

Bandh supporters blocked train movement by squatting in the railway tracks at Maligaon but police evicted them, police sources said.

"Their is no report of any untoward incident and the situation is normal", Assam Director General of Police Jayanta Narayan Choudhury said.
