Thousands of supporters of Qamar Ul Islam drove ok roads today to enforce a Bandh in protest of his removal from the ministry. In Muslim areas however they hardly had to ask, as the city wore a deserted look already.
In the initial stages itself the police however, detained Asghar Chulbul who was leading the protest, along with Mayor Syed Ahmed and scores of other people. The organisers of Protest and police worked hard to avoid any kind of mischief.
The market area shut down voluntarily, and that included even the acclaimed Bjp strongholds of Sunar Bazar etc. While Qamarul Islam strongholds like Mehbus and Kirana Bazar, vegetable market etc were closed even before the time. High drama ensured when a person tried to commit suicide by self immolation but police acted swiftly and stopped the man and detained him and put him in a police Van.
