After the violent clashes in Pune on January 01, 2018, the Dalit groups led another protest today (January 2), this time in Mumbai's Chembur area. 

What happened in Pune?

On the 200th anniversary celebrations of Vijay Diwas, when the Anglo-Maratha War (that involved many Dalits) took place between the army of Peshwa Bajirao II with a small force of the East India Company, a violent incident led to protests. 

Now, as a mark of outrage, the Dalit protestors have taken this to Mumbai and various other sectors of Maharashtra. #Chembur has begun trending on Twitter and the locals are posting traffic details and be-safe-texts for the general public.
