Hundreds of vehicles remained stranded as a large number of adivasis on Tuesday blocked roads in different areas of the district in protest against the massacre of adivasis by suspected NDFB(S) militants in Assam.

The agitators under the banner of 'Adivasi Sengel Abhiyan' blocked the Malda-Balurghat road near 20 Mile and also Gajol-Bamungola road near Badnagra from 9 am.

"The blockades have been continuing despite repeated appeals by the district administration to lift them as hundreds of vehicles remain stranded," Gajol Block Development Officer Sauvik Mukherjee said.

The agitators are also demanding compensation to families of the victims and safety for others, Mukherjee said.

The organisation had blocked trains in Malda town for nearly six hours yesterday.
