Prime accused in Bhima-Koregaon violence detained

Bhima Koregaon violence

The villagers, however, demanded that the government should take more efforts in arresting main conspirators behind the riots. The Peshwas were Brahmins, and the victory is seen as a symbol of assertiveness by Dalits.

The Pune Rural police had booked him under Sections 307, 143, 148, 149, and 295 of the IPC, and the Prevention of Atrocities Act, based on complaints filed at various police stations on January 1.

Following the incidents, Dalit organisations had called for a Maharashtra bandh, which also witnessed several incidents of stone pelting in several parts of the state, including Mumbai.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra government on Tuesday announced that all cases against accused booked for the violence would be withdrawn and compensation would be given to the people who suffered losses during the riot.

Last month, while extending his bail relief, the Supreme Court had rapped the State government and probe agencies for their tardy progress in their probe against Ekbote, questioning the agencies" claims that he was allegedly "untraceable'.

On 29 December, the samadhi of Govind Gopal Mahar (Gaikwad) was vandalized in Vadhu Budruk, a village almost 3 km away from Koregaon Bhima. "Keeping their future in mind, their names must be removed from the cases". "We welcome state government's decision of withdrawing of cases". "The police should arrest the conspirators and take stringent action against them". Rajendra Gaikwad, a local resident said, "The situation has normalised now. It has been almost three months but the government has not found main conspirators which is a huge failure of the government".

In an important development, the Maharashtra Government has chose to withdraw cases against accused booked for violence during the state-wide bandh called in the aftermath of the January 1 Bhima-Koregaon violence. Fadnavis also denied allegations that the organisation of accused Hindutvavadi leader Milind Ekbote had taken control of the samadhi.
