Cuttack: Vehicular movement has been disrupted on the Jatamundia- Khurda main road as local women have blocked the road at Talabasta chhak under Banki police limits since this morning demanding closure of a liquor shop.

According to information, hundreds of local women are now sitting on road and shouting slogans against the lackadaisical attitude of the district administration. They said even as they have approached the district administration umpteen times over their demand of closure of the shop located near school, no action has been taken yet. 'With no option left, we have taken to the streets. We will continue our protest until the liquor shop has not been closed,' said agitating women.

Police have reached the spot and are trying to placate the women.
