Pune: Most of the Pune rural area observed a complete ‘bandh’. Protestors had organised a rasta roko in several parts of the district including Indapur, Supe, Daund, Yavat, Mumbai-Pune Expressway and others.

Superintendent of Police (Rural) Sandip Patil said that barring minor rasta rokos, no untoward incidents were reported in the district during the protest. 

Patil said the police were frequently in touch with the protestors and had asked them to maintain law and order during the protest. More than 2,000 police officials were deployed in the district to maintain law and order. “There were several rumours on the Internet and so we chose to suspend Internet services temporarily in Baramati, Shirur, Khed, Junnar, Maval, Bhor and Daund tehsils of the district,” added Patil. Tyre burning incidents were reported in Sus village. Youths tonsured their heads in Wadgaon Nimbalkar, Varvand, Lonavla and other areas as part of the protest.
