Shops and business establishments remained shut, regular transport were off the road following the killing of Hindu Munnani activist last night. However government schools and office functioned.
The Munnani members picketed roads, attacked and burnt police vehicles near Thudiyalur.
Students and office-goers had a tough time as no transport was available in the evening. Adding trouble to their woes, cab drivers too charged more than double the usual rate. S. Priya, a student of a private college near Sungam claimed that students could not get buses in time and were forced to wait for more than an hour. “We are afraid that we might come under attack by miscreants,” she said and added that even private transport was not helping them.
C. Gomathy, a private employee from Singanallur claimed that she was forced to stay inside her locked office as protests were going on outside.
