Students protest after Jignesh Mevani, Umar Khalid's event cancelled in Mumbai

Pune police has registered an FIR against Dalit leader and newly elected MLA from Gujarat Jignesh Mevani and JNU student Umar Khalid on the charges of spreading disharmony among communities with their speeches.

On Thursday, the Mumbai police had denied Mevani permission to hold a rally. I told them that we will change the speakers but I will have to tell the students who have gathered to listen to them (Jignesh Mevani and Umar Khalid) but the police was not willing to listen at all. "The police then detained people, including students, stating that there could be a law and order problem".

However, the Maharashtra government has denied any dalit was killed in Bhima-Koregaon where clashes broke out between two groups on Monday during an event to mark 200 years of Bhima Koregaon battle near Pune.

Additional Commissioner of Police Ravindra Sengaonkar said: "In the speeches delivered on December 31, Mevani and Khalid had made some provocative statements". Apart from Mevani, JNU student leader Umar Khalid was also mentioned in the complaint. She also demanded the arrest of right wing leaders Sambhaji Bhide and Milind Ekbote who, she alleged, were behind the violence at Bhima Koregaon in Pune three days back.

The police had received several complaints against them.

"If we are to defeat the "New Peshwas", if we are to take the Bhima Koregaon fight forward, if we are to be inspired by the agitation, we need to be politicians".

Chhatra Bharati Vice President Sagar Bhalerao said the day-long event was planned long ago in which both Mewani, Khalid and others were listed speakers. "We follow not only Savitribai Phule and Babasaheb Ambedkar but also Bhagat Singh", Mevani said.

Prakash Ambedkar, the grandson of BR Ambedkar, called for a strike across Maharashtra on Wednesday, The Times of India reported.

Daghe said there was a huge police presence at the hall and the students were not being allowed to go inside.

The Pune event was followed by a series of protests across Maharashtra with Mumbai being the hard-hit on Tuesday.
