Several people were hurt as chaos erupted during the Maratha reservation protest in the Jalna region of central Maharashtra on Friday, according to news agency PTI. Police used tear gas canisters and baton charges to disperse an unruly mob in the Antarwali Sarathi hamlet, which is located between Dhule and Solapur. Police allegedly shot into the air, according to the villagers, but authorities did not confirm this. Manoj Jarange-led protesters have been on a hunger strike in the region since Tuesday demanding a quota for the Maratha community.
