Moreover, about 120 people were detained in various parts of the State during the three-day bandh who were later released after counselling or signing a ‘good behaviour’ or security bond, APP PRO Rohit Rajbir Singh said while briefing the media about the action taken during the shutdown.

He said that the police are searching for those people who ‘collected’ money for running the bandh call. “Next phase will be case registration and identification of criminal elements, followed by financial investigation.”

He informed that the police are moving for strong legal action against those persons and added that the next phase of the investigation will be done to track down the source of funding.

“We also had information about the collection of money to mobilize the bandh call across the state. We are gathering evidence including bank details and monetary transactions,” he said.

He said that the bandh passed off peacefully with no reports of any untoward incident from any part of the State.

A group of individuals and some organizations had enforced the bandh, demanding fulfillment of all 13-point demands put forward by the Pan Arunachal Joint Steering Committee, including the demand for null and void of all examinations where anomalies were found and arrest of former APPSC chairman Nipo Nabam.

The bandh had severely hit normal life in the capital region and other parts of the state as shops, markets and other business establishments, including the life-saving drug stores, remained close during the last three days.

All types of vehicular traffic, excepting the ones with police and magistrates on duty, were off the roads.

Moreover, the local newspapers, being published from the state capital, could not hit the stands for three days in a row due to the suspension of mobile internet services by the state government in view of the shutdown call.
