Student killed in Maharashtra shutdown violence; normal life affected

Dalit groups were celebrating the bicetenary of the Bhima-Koregaon battle which the forces of the British East India Company had won over those belonging to the Peshwa.

Mumbai: One of the accused in Bhima-Koregaon violence, Sambhaji Bhide is revered by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as his "guru", grandson of Dr. BR Ambedkar, Prakash Ambedkar, claimed on Thursday and said the prime minister should make his stand clear on the caste violence gripping Maharashtra.

"Nearly 50 per cent of the state's population took part in the shut-down", Ambedkar told reporters.

Order began to return to the city, after one of the key Dalit leader, Prakash Ambedkar, called for an end to the protests.

While the demonstrators and the protesters also tried to block rail traffic on the Western line in the suburban area of Goregaon, stated by the police official.

The Pune police also said that they have received a complaint against Gujarat MLA and Dalit leader Jignesh Mewani and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students leader Umar Khalid for their alleged provocative speeches at an event in Pune on December 31.

The Mahrashtra government led by Devendra Fadanavis immediately took action and ordered a judicial committee to look into the incident. Thirteen buses of the civic transport service "BEST" were also damaged by demonstrators and things are said to be solved in the evening time. But tracks were evacuated soon and train operations have resumed.

While the state government said it hasn't declared a holiday in schools on Wednesday due to the bandh, bus operators said they won't run school buses in Mumbai on Wednesday.

The agitation of Dalit outfits halted suburban local train service at Ghatkopar as trains heading towards CSMT were affected. Mumbai's "Dabbawalas" chose not to provide their services today.

"They attacked us with lathis [clubs]", the young man identifying himself as Sumit said. In the Lok Sabha, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, gunning for PM Modi and the BJP-RSS, said that the Bhima-Koregaon violence was the latest instance of atrocities against Dalits in the country, which, he added, included cases like the Una flogging and Rohith Vemula's suicide.

The shutdown was a fallout of Monday's riots in Koregaon-Bhima, Pune district, during the 200th anniversary celebrations of the Anglo-Maratha War of January 1, 1818. Since then the Dalit communities have been viewing it as a symbolic victory over the upper-caste Brahmins.
