Dalit organisations have called for a state-wide bandh on Wednesday to demand action against those involved in the violence at the 200th anniversary celebrations of the Bhima-Koregaon battle.

Mumbai was brought to a standstill on Tuesday as anger boiled over after violence marred the 200th anniversary celebrations of the Bhima-Koregaon battle in Pune district on Monday. The protesters sought action against those involved in the violence after one person was killed. Dalit protesters held up trains at Govandi and Chembur stations and also forced shops to shut down across the city. Protesters also attempted to march towards Ambedkar Garden in Chembur, but were restricted by the police. They blocked traffic on the roads, including on the Sion Panvel highway. Dalit organisations have also called for a state-wide bandh on Wednesday. Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis appealed for calm and ordered a judicial inquiry into the death. He also announced Rs 10 lakh compensation for the kin of the person killed in the violence on Monday.
