Mussoorie, September 12
Members of the Mussoorie Traders’ Association today observed a bandh and blocked traffic at Library Bazaar, demanding the arrest of the assailants who allegedly looted a petrol station owner of Rs 3 lakh yesterday.
Raising slogans against the police, the traders took out a march from Picture Palace to Library Chowk. Later, they blocked a road at Library Bazaar for more than two hours. They said the police had failed to arrest the accused, thus raising questions on its performance. They alleged that no one from the administration was ready to listen to their woes.
Satish Dahuandiyal, a member of the association, said the police had failed miserably to perform its duty, forcing them to take to the streets.
The traders lifted the blockade only after Mussoorie SDM Ramjee Saran assured them of organising their meeting with the District Magistrate tomorrow.
Meanwhile, commuters faced a lot of inconvenience as they had to wait for a couple of hours in their vehicles due to the blockade.
