Maratha protesters go on rampage in Pune

Pune, Aug 9 (UNI) The peaceful agitation by Maratha outfits in front of the District Collector's office here for quota demand turned violent as some of the protesters went on rampage on Thursday afternoon, smashing the window panes of the buildings, while few agitators tried to scale the compound wall.
The bandh saw some sporadic incidents of violence across Maharashtra in morning, with most shops and commercial establishments, private schools and colleges remaining shut all over the state.
State-run buses did not ply in Pune and other places, as a precautionary measure.
The pelting of stones on parked vehicles was reported at Somwar Peth area of city. The agitators also set ablaze few ST buses at Solapur in morning.
The pro-reservation agitators also took out a motorbike rally in most parts of this district.
According to police, the protesters also blocked roads at Budhgaon in Sangli.
The internet services were suspended in seven tehsils of Pune district, including Shirur, Khed, Baramati, Junnar, Maval, Daund and Bhor, as a precautionary measure.
Reports reaching here from Satara district said that no state transport buses were running on Thursday and all vehicles were parked at the central bus stand.
All petrol pumps and vegetable markets were also closed in Satara.
A pro-quota group in Latur blocked roads from midnight and disrupted the vehicular movement.
There were similar protests in Nashik, Buldhana and Solapur districts, where agitators blocked roads in some areas this morning, police officials said.
The state-run public transport services were partially suspended in Osmanabad and Buldhana districts to avoid any damage, as the agitators targeted more buses in the previous round of agitation, last month.
The politically-influential Maratha community, constituting around 30 per cent of the state's population, has been agitating to press for the demand of reservation in jobs and education.
