Patna: CPI(M-L) activists on Thursday squatted on the railway tracks in some districts to disrupt train movements during the 24-hour 'Bihar-Bandh' called by them demanding a CBI probe into the murder of Sonhathu panchayat mukhiya Devendra Kumar Singh alias Chhotu Jaiswal.
CPI (M-L) cadres carrying banners, posters and placards agitated on the railway tracks to disrupt movement of trains in Aurangabad, Bhojpur, Darbhanga, Samastipur,  Patna and Jehanabad districts, official reports said.
The protesting CPI(M-L) activists also raised slogans at several railway stations across the state demanding immediate arrest of the killers of the mukhiya and CBI probe into the mukhiya murder case and the subsequent police lathicharge on the protesters in Aurangbadbad district.
However, East Central Railway (ECR) Public Relations Officer (PRO) Neeraj Ambhastha claimed that there was no impact of the CPI(M-L) stir on the railway services and the trains were plying as usual.
A strong crowd of CPI(M-L) leaders, workers and sympathisers led by its national general secretary Deepankar Bhattacharya took out a protest march in the state capital and blocked the vehicular traffic on the busy Dakbunglow roundabout during the bandh.
On the Aurangabad incidents the CPI(M-L) leader demanded the arrest of the killers of the mukhiya and action against the district magistrate and the superintendent of police, besides CBI probe in the murder case and the police lathicharge on the protesters earlier this month.
