A minor boy was killed in Nanded and several people were injured in Mumbai in sporadic incidents of violence which paralysed large parts of Maharashtra during a 10-hour shutdown called by Dalit parties on Wednesday. The ‘Maharashtra Bandh’ call was given by Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh and other parties, ironically, to protest against Monday’s riots leading to the death of a youth from Nanded in Koregaon-Bhima in Pune district.
District Superintendent of Police Chandrakishore Mina said the victim’s body has been sent for autopsy to ascertain the exact cause of the death. The family of the deceased alleged that the youth - Yogesh Prahlad Jadhav- was seriously injured during police caning to clear a road block. Maharashtra chief minister, Devendra Fadnavis said all the incidents of violence across the state shall be probed and appropriate action will be taken against the offenders.
Dalit activists were seen seating on rail tracks, shouting slogans and waving flags to block train services in the city and suburbs of Mumbai, Thane and Palghar.
