Vellore: Shops in Odugathur near Vellore downed shutters for the second day following police failing to arrest a person who assaulted the husband of the town panchayat president over an altercation a day ago, on Wednesday. Traffic to and from Odugathur was affected following supporters of Baskaran, husband of town panchayat president Sathyavathi staging a road roko with shops closing down late on Tuesday evening.
