Kancchal was allegedly beaten up by some lawyers in Lucknow a few days ago.

Bazaars were also closed in Mathura, Hathras and Aligarh.

But after lunch, shops started opening and business resumed. The bandh was supported by a large number of bazaar committees.

The leaders of the associations claimed the shut-down a total success.

But the police and administrative officials said there was no impact of the bandh call in the region.
