Andher Nagari: Maharashtra Govt

copy-of-getimage3.jpg      In spite of orders from Supreme Court and Centre over migration of labourers, not much has been done in Maharashtra to stem violence against north Indians…

THE CYCLE OF VIOLENCE
The current cycle of violence targeting north Indians in Maharashtra started on Feb 3 after Raj Thackeray’s call

FEBRUARY 3 | SHIVAJI PARK

MNS activists bash up north Indians going to attend a SP rally; several people are beaten up and taxis, driven by north Indians damaged. Eleven arrested

FEBRUARY 4 | DADAR RAILWAY STATION

North Indians are pulled out of trains at Dadar and bashed up. Cops arrest four of the miscreants

FEBRUARY 5 | GOVANDI RAILWAY STATION

More people from UP and Bihar are attacked at Govandi railway station. Two arrested for violence

FEBRUARY 8 | BHOIWADA

FEBRUARY 12 | BHOIWADA AND KALACHOWKIE

Trouble in Bhoiwada and Kalachowkie. Mobs forcibly down shutters of shops, attack taxis driven by north Indians. Four of the goons are arrested

FEBRUARY 13 | THE BIG DAY

        The government, after repeated prodding from Centre and adverse remarks from SC, finally musters the courage to arrest Raj Thackeray. But he gets bail. This, however, is provocation enough for MNS supporters to go on a rampage. Mobs take over Mumbai, force people off the road, shut shops and target north Indians (and their taxis). Several people arrested as the first death caused by the agitation is reported from Nashik; a man dies after a stone hits him — ironically — a Maharashtrian.

MARCH 22 | CHEMBUR

Hooligans attack an UP family living in Chembur for nearly 50 years.

MARCH 23 | SANTA CRUZ
