Kasargod, Apr 16, 2018  : Kasargod is observing a voluntary bundh or hartal on April 16, Monday  to protest  against the  barbaric rape and murder of an eight year old girl at Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir.   Buses as well as other vehicular movement has come to a standstill as part of the hartal being observed under the aegis of Janapara Samithi.

The hartal call was given through WhatsApp and other social media sites landing people in confusion. Most shops have also downed their shutters.

A government bus was stoned at Uppala on Sunday night while there were incidents of obstructing vehicular movement at Manjeshwar, Nayammarmoole, Cherkala and other places.  Stones, tyres and wooden logs were placed on roads to block vehicles. Police have arrested 25 persons for blocking vehicular traffic.

Though WhatsApp messages on Kerala Bundh on Monday  were widely circulated without the name of any organisation  since Sunday, the police had  not taken the same seriously.

However, realising that the message has had its impact, police have now taken precautionary measures to prevent any untoward incident.
