    Bandh In Itanagar Turns Violent As Protesters Vandalise Vehicles, Pelt Stones

    The protesters also burnt tyres to prevent the movement of local residents and vehicles

    The 12-hour bandh called by All Nyishi Youth Association (ANYA) on February 28th, 2020 turned violent as the protesters vandalised vehicles and pelted stones in Arunachal Pradesh capital Itanagar.

    The protesters damaged the vehicles by pelting stones and hitting with rods. At some places, they even intercepted the vehicles, included SUVs and damaged them in the presence of security personnel.

    Several train passengers were stranded at the Naharlagun railway station due to the bandh. The iSBT also wore a deserted look due to the 12-hour bandh. Stone pelting have been reported in Ganga Market. The protesters attacked a few vehicles and damaged the windscreen and window glasses.

    The protesters also burnt tyres to prevent the movement of local residents and vehicles. After reports of vandalism, the authorities deployed a large number of security personnel in the town to thwart any untoward incident.

    The roads of the Itanagar including National Highway 415 wore a deserted look as commercial and private vehicles went off the roads. Shopkeepers, banks and petrol pumps downed their shutters. The attendance in government offices was thin.

    The ANYA called the bandh demanding, among others, scrapping of the Arunachal Pradesh Staff Selection Board (APSSB), the suspension and arrest of some top officials of APSSB for allegedly indulging in malpractice, the implementation of the district-wise quota in the board, scrapping of the GeM procurement system.

    The youth body also demanded early construction of the Trans-Arunachal Highway between Potin-Bopi road and Joram to Koloriang road and resolution on the Assam-Arunachal border dispute at Dollungmukh under Kamle district.

    The Capital Complex district administration had earlier declared a 12-hour Capital bandh as ‘illegal’ under section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) read with Arunachal Pradesh Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (APUAPA), 2014.

    City SP Incharge J K Lego has appealed to the bandh supporters not to breach law and order and maintain peace.
