Jammu, Jun 30 (UNI) The Winter Capital of Jammu and Kashmir today strongly reacted to the call for Jammu 'bandh' given by the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and Sangh groups as hundreds of protestors blocked National Highway and pelted stones in the office of Peoples Democratic Party.

The protestors were expressing anger against the Kashmiri leadership for 'politicising' the issue of transfer of land to Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB).

Police had to resort to mild lathi-charge to disperse the furious mob as it pelted stones on the office of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Tension prevailed in Jammu as protestors clashed with the police, attacked the buses and burnt tyres on the Jammu-Pathankot National Highway. They also burnt the effigies of Governor N N Vohra, former Chief Minister and PDP patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, Hurriyat Conference leader Sayeed Ali Shah Geelani and Deputy Chief Minister M H Beigh.

Shouting slogans against Pakistan, Hurriyat Conference and Kashmir-centric leaders, thousands of agitators blocked the Jammu Tawi Bridge and disrupted the traffic to observe indefinite 'bandh' in the City of Temples.
