protesters alleging police inaction in a murder case here

While most shops remained open, cinema halls and petrol
pumps were closed till noon. The city was largely unaffected
despite bus services being suspended till afternoon.
Members of Janshakti Sangharsh Morcha, who had assembled
at Jalori Gate Circle here, had called for a half-day bandh
demanding police action against the culprits behind the murder
of Ashok Dave, a railway employee, on April 29.
Dave, was brutally murdered by some unidentified persons
on April 29 and his body was found near DPS School here.
"We had met Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and complained
about police inaction in the murder case and demanded
compensation for the victim`s family but nothing has been done
so far," said Jagat Narayan Joshi, a member of the morcha.
Members of the morcha have said that they would
reassemble in the next five days to decide the future course
of their agitation.
