"Measures have been taken to prevent the spread of rumours on social media, and a number of villages like Sanawadi, Vadhu-Budruk and Shikrapur along the highway have been sealed", said a police officer.

Traffic was hit on the Eastern Express Highway near Mumbai, train services were affected, and a protester who was trying to set himself on fire, was saved just in time.

"A sitting High Court judge will head the inquiry", Fadnavis said, a day after a youth died as a group, opposed to the celebrations due to the "British victory" in the battle, clashed with Dalits rallying their way to the battle memorial. Traffice from Vikhroli, Jogeshwari-Vikhroli link road and Sion-Panvel highway was diverted to LBS Road, Saki Vihar and Umarshi Bappa Chowk respectively. There is nothing to panic.

The police said the deceased man belonged to an upper caste. The clash broke our between villagers from Koregaon Bhima, Pabal and Shikrapur and a large group of people celebrating the January 1, 1818, victory of British troops over Peshwa Bajirao II's army in Koregaon Bhima.
