New Delhi: Once again, some groups have called Bharat Bandh on Tuesday. The Centre has advised all states to beef up security and prevent violence.

This time Bandh is called, reportedly, against caste-based reservations in jobs and education, an official said.

The Ministry of Home Affairs said the districts magistrates and SPs will be personally held responsible for any violence in their area of jurisdiction. The missive came a week after a similar protest saw large scale violence in different parts of the country leading to the death of about a dozen people, reported news agency PTI.

While the April 2 Bharat Bandh was called by groups opposing the alleged dilution of SC/ST (prevention of of atrocities) Act by a Supreme Court order, today’s protest is being reportedly called by people opposed to caste-based reservations in jobs and education.

LIVE UPDATES:

 

    • In Firozabad (Uttar Pradesh), schools for students of Class I to IX will remain closed today, as a precautionary measure, in the wake of Bharat Bandh.

 

    • In view of Bharat Bandh called by different groups on Tuesday, prohibitory orders are clamped in Jaipur.

 

    • Internet services are suspended in the city from 12 midnight on Monday till Tuesday night.
