Maratha Agitation:Know the series of event till now

Updated 28 Jul 2018 07:26 AM

A protester, who was injured in violence during the Maratha reservation stir on Wednesday in Navi Mumbai's Kopar Khairane, succumbed to his injuries today, doctors said.
With this, the death toll in the violence that erupted across the state earlier this week now stands at three.
Doctors at the JJ Hospital said Rohan Todkar (25), who sustained multiple injuries to his head, hands and legs, died today after being shifted to the state-run hospital at Byculla yesterday.
Meanwhile, protests by the community demanding reservation in jobs and education continued in several parts of the state today, officials.
Women, armed with rolling pins, held a protest march in Parli town in Beed district demanding the release of demonstrators who were arrested for allegedly indulging in violence during the agitation earlier this week, they said.
Similarly, protests were held in Pune, Nanded, Hingoli and Washim districts, where shutdown was observed and roads were blocked.
These protests, barring a few aberrations, were largely peaceful, they added.
Facing flak from the Maratha community representatives and the opposition, which accused him of dillydallying on the issue, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis decided to convene an all-party leaders' meeting tomorrow to discuss the issue.
The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by the chief minister late last night and attended by senior BJP ministers, including Chandrakant Patil, Girish Mahajan, Subhash Deshmukh and the party's state unit chief, Raosaheb Danve.
