Kolkata: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has called for a 12-hour ‘Bangla bandh’ on Wednesday, in a bid to protest against the Islampur school violence in North Dinajpur in which two students lost their lives in clashes with police.

Security arrangements have been heightened ahead of the bandh. A total number of 4,000 security personnel have been deployed across the city.

The government has made attendance mandatory for all employees. Special arrangements have been made at bus and tram depot, metro and rail stations.
