Several towns and cities in Maharashtra remained on edge as after a day of angry protests, Dalit groups called for a shutdown in Mumbai tomorrow. The police said they have made elaborate arrangements in view of the call, and while schools have made no announcement regarding closure, a school bus owners' association said buses will not ply in the morning. Demanding action regarding yesterday's caste clashes near Pune, in which a man was killed, Dalit protesters had blocked major Mumbai roads at the rush hour, damaged scores of buses and disrupted rail traffic. More than a 100 protesters were later detained, the police said. (Video courtesy: @jitendrajain)
