Maharashtra bandh LIVE: 'Mauni baba' PM should speak up

Maharashtra is bracing for unrest and protests in several parts following Monday’s deadly violence that hit a Dalit celebration and which left a 28-year-old man dead.

The violence, which took place during the 200th anniversary celebrations of the Koregaon-Bhima battle, saw Mumbai, Pune and Aurangabad paralysed as Dalit groups took to the streets to protest Monday’s death.

Buses were vandalised, stones were pelted and shops were shut as the Bhima Koregaon violence took a slightly political turn with politicians of all colour commenting on Monday’s riots or its aftermath.
