Kolkata, July 16 (ANI): The West Bengal Congress Committee has called for a 12hour long statewide bandh on Friday, to protest against the alleged police atrocities on its workers during Thursday's 12 hour long shutdown.

Congress called for 12hour long shut down on Thursday to protest against the attack on its MLA s in Mongalkote in Burdwan district on Wednesday.

A party activist was killed during Thursday's shut down, and as many as four buses were set ablaze by the angry Congress workers. They also disturbed the rail and road services at many places in the state.
