Six people died in the state during a Bharat Bandh on April 2. Cellphone internet service will be snapped across the state capital Jaipur and Alwar from 10 tonight and prohibitory orders, banning large gatherings, will be imposed. After the upper caste in mathur, the Rajput sabha has also announced to take part in the protest, which increased the concern of administration.

"The Home Ministry has asked all the states to heighten security measures and make proper plans to prevent any untoward incident". In Uttar Pradesh, an advisory was issued to all district police chiefs, asking them to maintain law and order in the state. Curfew has been imposed in Bhind and Morena.

"More than a dozen people were injured in the violent clash between supporters of the Bharat Bandh and a pro-reservation group comprising OBCs and Dalits", a district police official said. Punjab, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Gujarat, Haryana, Maharashtra and Delhi were also hit by violence. In Gujarat, there have been no open calls for a bandh.

The April 2 shutdown called by Dalit outfits had seen large-scale violence in several states, including Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
