Lakhs gather at Bhima Koregaon for mega Dalit event

Jan 01, 2020 15:47 IST

The Pune district administration has suspended internet services in Bhima Koregaon as a precautionary measure in view of the lakhs of Dalits gathering at the venue for the anniversary of the historic third Anglo-Maratha war in 1818. The Pune police said about five lakh people had gathered at the spot. At least 10,000 policemen have been deployed at the venue, about 40 km from Pune, as a security measure after caste riots had erupted there two years ago, in which one person was killed and several others were injured.
