12-hour Bargarh bandh over student’s death


Bargarh: A 12-hour bandh was called by the Bargarh Sachetana Nagarika Committee on Saturday over the death of Aditya Raj, a student of Vikash First Step School.

The bereaved family members of the student have alleged that their son died due to the negligence of the school authorities.

Protesting this, the Committee is observing a 12 hour shutdown in the town today.

The dawn to dusk bandh has paralysed the normal life. While markets, business establishments, shops downed their shutters, all the government and private offices and educational institutions have also remained closed.

Notably, almost major political parties, Bargarh Journalists’ Association, Bargarh District Bar Association, Bargarh District Parents’ Association and several organisations have supported the bandh call given by the Bargarh Sachetana Nagarika Committee.
