The ‘Maharashtra Bandh’ call was given by Bharipa Bahujan Mahasangh and other parties, ironically, to protest against Monday’s riots leading to the death of a youth from Nanded in Koregaon-Bhima in Pune district.
District Superintendent of Police Chandrakishore Mina said the student’s body has been sent for autopsy to ascertain the exact cause of the death. The family of the deceased alleged that the student, Yogesh Prahlad Jadhav, was injured during police caning to clear a road block.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said all the incidents of violence across the state shall be probed and appropriate action will be taken against the offenders. The shutdown call was withdrawn by BRM President Prakash Ambedkar at 4 pm.
