Cuttack: A 12-hour bandh in Baramba in Cuttack district demanding subdivision status to the Baramba block has disrupted normal life in the area on Thursday.

Markets, business establishments, educational institution and government offices have remained closed in view of the bandh. However, emergency services have been exempted from the purview of the bandh.
The agitators have threatened to further intensify their protest if their demands are not fulfilled at the earliest. Reportedly, police personnel have been deployed to thwart any untoward incident.
