Guwahati, Nov 3: The All Assam Student Union (AASU) sponsored dawn-to-dusk Assam bandh on Monday, Nov 3 affected the normal life as it was fully observed in the Brahmaputra valley. The shutdown evoked partial response in the Barak valley.
The call for bandh was issued in protest aganist the recent bomb blasts which claimed 81 lives, so far.
Altogether 22 AASU supporters were arrested from Rangiya near here this morning as they were trying to stop vehicles on the National Highway, police said.
