Bandh in Maharashtra

  MUMBAI, JANUARY 3RD 

The bandh today was called by  Prakash Ambedkar, the grandson of Dalit icon BR Ambedkar.  .  

   Clashes erupted on January 1 in Pune during the commemoration by Dalit groups of the battle of Bhima-Koregaon. As an argument between some assembled Dalits and right-wing groups spun out of control, an 28-year-old Maratha was killed.    In Mumbai, 13 buses of the civic transport service 'BEST' were damaged by protesters. Local train service at Harbour Line was disrupted following protests at Gowadi. Bus services to Satara and Baramati town, too, were suspended this morning.

   School bus operators in Mumbai did not ply buses in the morning as a precautionary measure, but schools remained open. Mumbai's famous Dabbawallas also suspended services for the day,
