Jodhpur: A half-day bandh called by protesters alleging police inaction in a murder case here received mixed response on Saturday.

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.
