Ranchi bandh evokes mixed response



Ranchi: The dawn-to-dusk Ranchi bandh called by ten traders associations in protest against the killing of a trader evoked mixed response on Friday.

Led by the president of the Truck Owners' Association, Uday Shankar Ojha, and others took out a procession in protest against the abduction and killing of a trader, Gyanchand Jain.

Jain was abducted on February 14 and his body was recovered on the outskirts of the state capital yesterday.

While shops were closed during the day, educational institutions and offices remained open, according to police sources.
