Maoist bandh evokes mixed response in Jharkhand


Train services remain unaffected


Ranchi: A 24-hour shutdown called by the CPI (Maoist) evoked a mixed response in the Naxal-affected rural areas of Jharkhand on Saturday with train services remaining unaffected, though buses and trucks kept off road.

“It was a mixed response in the rural areas of Gumla, Lohardaga, Latehar, Palamau, Garhwa, Giridih, Simdega. There was no untoward incident anywhere across the State,” a senior police officer said here.

Highways touching Naxal-affected areas remained deserted while the police continued patrolling at strategic places, including railway tracks and small railway stations, he said.

Loading and unloading of various minerals were affected as trucks did not operate following the bandh.

The bandh had no impact in semi-urban and urban areas, the police said.

The CPI (Maoist) called the shutdown in protest against an anti-encroachment drive that has left thousands of families homeless in Ranchi, Jamshedpur and Dhanbad. - PTI
