A dawn to dusk Vijayapura bandh on Saturday called by several people’s organisation, condemning the rape and murder of a schoolgirl, has evoked good response.
But for a stray incident of stone pelting on a KSRTC bus on Indi Road, the bandh was by and large peaceful.
The city witnessed a total shutdown. Buses remained off road since morning as the KSRTC bus stand wore a deserted look through the day. Traders shut down shops voluntarily while many schools and colleges remained closed.
The agitating activists expressed their anguish against the heinous incident by burning tyres on several roads in the city.
