During the bandh, since most of the shops were closed, it was a lucky day for the people in the area and those using the route. The fire brigade immediately arrived at the spot. MLA J R Lobo also visited the spot and instructed the officers as well as the fire brigade personnel to immediately clear the debris.

Corporator D K Ashok and MCC commissioner Dr Gopalkirshna also were at the spot.
