Itanagar: The dawn to dusk capital bandh called by the Unemployed Arunachalee Engineers' Association (UAEA) on Tuesday paralysed normal life here while bandh enforcers set on fire the office of the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC).

Bandh enforcers set on fire the office of the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) in the wee hours today damaging five rooms of the building, police said.

"Police had arrested four persons in this connection," Itanagar police station officer in charge M Bui informed.

The agitators also blocked roads at several sectors of the state capital which were later removed by the police.

All business establishments including banks, post offices and educational institutions remained closed during the day, while all public and private vehicles remained off the road.

However, a few state transport buses were seen plying with police escort while attendances in all government offices were thin.

The UAEA had called the bandh to protest the alleged foul play by the APPSC authorities in faulty evaluation of answer scripts of AE (Civil) written exam conducted recently for recruitment in state’s PWD.

The UAEA on December 27 had staged a dharna and had submitted a memorandum to Governor Gen (Retd) J J Singh demanding the APPSC to re-conduct the AE (Civil) exam and resignation of the Commission officials including its chairman and members for their alleged role in faulty evaluation of answer scripts.
