Belgaum: The Belgam bandh called by Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti (MES) in protest against Thursday’s incident of ransacking of furniture, files and breaking glass panes of the Corporation office, allegedly by activists of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) evoked a "poor" response, police said.

Barring some shops and establishments who downed their shutters in support of the bandh, by and large most commercial establishments remained open and schools and colleges functioned normally, police sources told PTI.

The city transport was not affected and buses and auto-rickshaws plied as usual, they said.

Over 50 KRV activists were arrested in this connection and 67 others were taken into preventive custody today to prevent any untoward situation, police said.
