Meerut: The state unit of BJP on Monday called
for a bandh on July 13 to protest against the alleged failure
of the UP police to find party leader Brijesh Tyagi`s wife,
who went missing two weeks ago.

Almost every political party except BSP has promised
to participate in the bandh, a BJP spokesman said today.

Councillor Tyagi`s doctor wife Suman was allegedly
abducted near Machhra village on June 27, while she was on her
way to her clinic in Kithaur town in the district.

"We have given enough time to the police to solve this
case, but now we can`t wait any longer. We are calling for a
bandh on July 13 to protest against the failure of the police
to find any evidence related to the case," BJP MP Rajendra
Agarwal said.

Meanwhile, RLD workers took out a protest march from
Bachcha Park today and submitted a memorandum regarding the
case to the DIG.
