A total of 16 FIRs were registered by Mumbai Police in connection with the state-wide bandh called by Dalit leaders to protest against the Bhima-Koregaon violence.

 

In addition, over 300 miscreants who incited or practiced violence were detained.

 

Many of the protestors were caught on tape vandalising both public and private property throughout the city. Some even threatened individuals who were trying to catch them in the act.

 

The bandh was eventually called off in the evening, following which Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis issued a statement saying incidents of violence by protestors will be carefully examined and the guilty punished.
