Maharashtra violence, student killed

Mumbai, Jan 3: A minor boy was killed in Nanded and several people were injured in Mumbai in sporadic incidents of violence which paralysed large parts of Maharashtra during a 10-hour shutdown called by Dalit parties on Wednesday. The shutdown was a fallout of Monday’s riots in Koregaon-Bhima during the 200th anniversary celebrations of the Anglo-Maratha War of January 1, 1818. Members of the Dalit community had gathered around the Victory Pillar erected by the British in Sanaswadi village when stone pelting started, leading to the death of 28-year-old Rahul Fatangale.
