Policemen accompany the Dalits protestors as they stage a protest against the violence in Bhima Koregaon area of Pune, in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Protesters attacked buses, stopped suburban trains and blocked roads at various places in Mumbai as normal life was hit in the city and other parts of Maharashtra during the bandh. We need to find out who has instigated the further protests. Schools were not closed but students did not attend school in large numbers. The Maharashtra government had failed to beef up security prior to the event which resulted into violence.

Violence erupted in Pune district when Dalit groups were celebrating the bicentenary of the Bhima-Koregaon battle in which the forces of the British East India Company defeated the Peshwa's army.

The right-wing groups were objecting to the observance of "Victory Day" since they considered it to be an anti-national celebration. As an argument between some assembled Dalits and right-wing groups spun out of control, a 28-year-old Maratha was killed.

Regarding this tension is Maharashtra, Jignesh Mewani tweeted, "Maharashtra government must ensure rule of law". Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and other leaders have appealed people to maintain peace and harmony. Majority were Dalit protesters.
