Bharat bandh violence: Murder case registered against 2 policemen, six civilians
A murder case has been registered against two policemen and six civilians after the Bharat bandh call given by various dalit organisations to protest dilution of the Prevention of Atrocities against SCs and STs Act by the Supreme Court turned violent in Madhya Pradesh.
In Bhind district, a rioting case has also been filed against 31 known and 1,000 unidentified people. At least four people have died in Bhind, two in Gwalior, one in Morena and one in Dabra because of the violence.
A curfew was imposed in Bhind, Gwalior and Morena and is still in place to avoid any violence. Internet services remain suspended in five districts of Bhind, Gwalior, Morena, Sagar and Balaghat.
Regarding those who were caught on camera firing gunshots in Gwalior and Morena, Bhopal IG Makrand Deoaskar has said, "the investigations are one. They will be arrested after focus shifts from law and order. Right now, I cannot identify them".
In the wake of violent protests in several northern states of India, the Ministry of Home Affairs cautioned states to take all preventive measures and maintain public order and ensure the safety of lives of people and property.
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, while speaking in Lok Sabha today, said that the Modi government has made no change in the SC/ST Act. He said, "Modi government is committed to upholding the SC/ST Act".
The Supreme Court will be hearing the review petition filed by the Narendra Modi government against dilution of certain provisions of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
