Four persons were killed and several injured during indiscriminate firing by a group of people following violent protests that erupted in Madhya Pradesh’s Gwalior, Bhind, Morena, Sagar, Balaghat and Satna districts in support of ‘Bharat bandh’ called by Dalit organisations across the country against a recent Supreme Court ruling diluting the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 1989.
Delhi Police is alert. We have adequate police deployment at places & senior officials are also present in the field.
All steps will be taken to maintain law & order: Deependra Pathak, Spokesperson, Delhi Police on Bharat Bandh over SC/ST protection act
