Hubli (Karnataka) [India], Jan 8 (ANI): A bandh has been called by various Dalit organisations in Karnataka’s Hubli in a bid to protest against Pune’s Bhima Koregaon violence.
The agitating protestors also vandalised vehicles and police barricades.
Earlier on January 1, a youth was killed in a clash between two groups during an event to mark 200 years of Bhima-Koregaon battle that took place near Pune.
