Madhubani (Bihar): A group of jawans of the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) have allegedly ransacked several shops, vandalised the vehicle of a local MLA and assaulted some civilians sparking widespread protests by the people here on Saturday.

Police said the jawans went on the rampage after some of their colleagues were attacked and injured by a group of drunken youths following an altercation with them last night.

As the news of the "unruly" behaviour of the SSB jawans spread, angry locals enforced closure of shops and markets and blocked roads in the town this morning.

They also jammed the railway tracks at Rajnagar railway station disrupting movement of Gangasagar Express and Janaki Express for several hours, police said.

The agitation was called off after the district authorities assured them of taking legal action against the erring jawans.
