Hundreds detained for resorting to violence during protests over Maratha reservation

Prime News, National (Pune), August 10:- As many as 185 people have been detained from three different places in connection with violence during state-wide protests organised by Maratha Kranti Morcha over demand for Maratha Reservation. Five police personnel were injured in stone pelting by protesters in Chandni Chowk.

Maratha Kranti Morcha and other Maratha groups have been protesting across Maharashtra over the demand for reservation. They had called a state-wide bandh on Thursday, however, said that the protest would be held in a peaceful manner.

Parts of Maharashtra, especially Koparkhairane and Kalamboli in Navi Mumbai, had witnessed violence during the Maratha quota stir late last month. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
