Thanjavur: Traffic was disrupted for more than two hours on the busy East Coast Road in Sethubavachatram today as people resorted to road blockade protesting non-disbursement of cash at the local branch of Indian Overseas Bank (IOB).

Police used mild force to disperse the agitators and arrested nine persons.

According to police, a large number of customers had turned up at the bank to withdraw cash. But to their disappointment, the bank had no adequate cash to disburse.

Subsequently, they staged a road blockade. On information, police rushed to the spot and persuaded the crowd to disperse.

As the agitators did not relent, police used a mild force to disperse them and arrested nine persons.
