Kokrajhar (Assam): The 12-hour Bodoland Territorial Administered Districts (BTAD) bandh called by the Bodoland People Progressive Front (BPPF) paralysed normal life in the six districts of Lower Assam on Wednesday, police said.

All educational institutions, shops, business and commercial establishments were closed and vehicles remained off the roads.

Long distance vehicles remained stranded on National Highway 31 though trains operated as per schedule.

The bandh has been called to protest against continued violence in the area by suspected anti-talk faction of the NDFB and alleged failure of the police and state machinery to contain it.

There was no reports of any untoward incident from any part of the six BTAD districts -- Kokrajhar, Bongaigaon, Chirang, Baksa, Udalguri and Darrang.
