While most of the shops, business establishments and educational institutions remained closed in the state, the number of vehicles plying on the streets were few in several areas. However, train and air services remained absolutely normal. Meanwhile, students took out processions to protest the attacks on Biharis. Shouting anti-MNS slogans, they also forced the shopkeepers in several areas to down their shutters.
As a result of huge deployment of security forces, the overall situation remained peaceful and there was no report of any untoward incident from anywhere in the state so far.
