Incidents of tyre burning and vandalisation of vehicles were reported from several parts. Several leading schools remained shut. Bandh supporters were also seen forcing bookshops and coaching institutes to down shutters.

In Patna, activists belonging to pro-Left student bodies stormed the Rajendra Nagar Terminal railway station and squatted on the tracks, disrupting the movement of trains for about half an hour early in the morning.

There was fresh disturbance at the station around 10 am when hundreds of JAP?activists burnt tyres on a road adjacent to the Rajendra Nagar Terminal even as some of them squatted on the tracks.

During the bandh in Bhojpur, shops and malls were hit with stones. The Nawada police in the district detained around 50 activists after the protests turned violent.

People also staged a demonstration close to the block headquarters at Musahari in Muzaffarpur, disrupting vehicle movement. In Muzaffarpur, bandh supporters allegedly pelted stones at a garment store.

Additional director general (headquarters) Jitendra Kumar said the bandh in Bihar was peaceful and there were no reports of violence from any parts of the state. “We are still in the process of collecting details. No untoward incident was reported,” he said.
