Madhubani (Bihar): A group of jawans of the
Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) have allegedly ransacked several
shops, vandalised the vehicle of a local MLA and assaulted
some civilians sparking widespread protests by the people here
on Saturday.
Police said the jawans went on the rampage after some of
their colleagues were attacked and injured by a group of
drunken youths following an altercation with them last night.

As the news of the "unruly" behaviour of the SSB jawans
spread, angry locals enforced closure of shops and markets and
blocked roads in the town this morning.
They also jammed the railway tracks at Rajnagar railway
station disrupting movement of Gangasagar Express and Janaki
Express for several hours, police said.

The agitation was called off after the district
authorities assured them of taking legal action against the
erring jawans.
