A boy was killed in Nanded. Yogesh Prahlad Jadhav’s family alleged he was seriously injured during police caning to clear a roadblock. The bandh, called off later in the day, saw sporadic violence in Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Nashik, Aurangabad and Nagpur. A large number of Dalits, carrying blue flags, forced closure of shops. At several places motorists received minor injuries in stone-throwing. In Mumbai, the iconic red BEST buses were stopped and their windscreens smashed. At least 13 buses were vandalised, officials said. Local train services, the city’s lifeline, plied intermittently as the railway authorities cleared protesters squatting on tracks.
