Founder of the Bhim Army group, 30-year-old Chandrashekhar got arrested from Himachal Pradesh's Dalhousie on Thursday. He was incriminated for the Saharanpur riots case which happened in May this year. Still lingering on the caste issues, Bhim Army objected a procession of Rajput king Maharana Pratap to pass through Dalit-dominated areas and to turn off the music while passing by a Ravidas temple.
Rajputs turned a deaf ear to Dalits which lead to a violent clash between both the caste with both pelting stones and bricks at each other.
5-20 houses and bikes were set to fire leaving 16 people badly injured and costing a man’s life.
Unrest among the Dalits increased, Chandrashekar called for a "mahapanchayat" and triggered everybody to collect donations and ask for compensation and relief for those affected. He also circulated messages on WhatsApp and other social media platforms, to appeal Dalits to join the protests.
But it led to another war in which Dalits torched police chowki and around 20 vehicles when district administration refused to grant.
This unnecessary turmoil disrupted many lives was unacceptable and thus the man behind this provocation, Chandrashekhar was finally arrested.
