Centre asks states to tighten security for Bharat Bandh today

Vehicular movement was also affected with buses remaining off the roads while protestors halted trains at several places.

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.

Once out of Africa, early human migration was widespread
In the Nefud Desert of Saudi Arabia , researchers found an early human finger bone that's approximately 88,000 years old. Scientists once thought that humans moved out of Africa within a single period of about 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.

Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani said that the Centre must bring an ordinance to before April 14 to nullify the Supreme Court judgement on the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

The Times of India reported that "Sarv Samaj", a grouping of different caste groups like Jats, Gujjars, Brahmins and Rajputs, has given the call for tomorrow's Bharat Bandh.

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

Another petition was filed in the court saying that the SC verdict passed on March 20 was "unfair and unjust and it should be stayed".
