Activists of the Bahujan Samaj Party, Ambedkar Sena Sena, Ambedkar Sena (Ambedekar), Lok Insaaf Party, and different other Dalit organisations hold noisy demonstrations here today.

The demonstrators raising placards were protesting against increasing atrocities on Dalits. Dalit leader Harbhajan Suman demanded adequate compensation and a job for the kin of the family of the deceased.
