Schools, colleges along with government offices also remained closed during the bandh observation.
BJP has claimed that the lady PEO In-Charge had been raped and then murdered by the miscreants. BJP leader and former Odisha DGP Prakash Mishra who visited Haridaspur post the incident claimed that the investigation is not moving in the right direction in the case as the accused are influencing the cops.
