Members from all tribal families living in the Chelikhala area under Bishalgarh Subdivision of Sepahijala district blocked the Boxnagar-Bishalgarh road on Thursday due to absence of electricity and water supply.

Due to the road blockade, local administration and police rushed to the spot and assured them of an immediate solution regarding power and water availability.
