Three people were killed in Ahmedabad, in the late night violence that erupted in many parts of Gujarat, following the arrest of Hardik Patel, who was spearheading a campaign demanding OBC status to Patel community. He was released later.
A few areas in Ahmedabad, Surat, Mehsana, Visnagar, and Unjha were placed under curfew on Wednesday, while in other places paramilitary forces have been deployed to ensure law and order situation in the state as Gujarat remained closed for the day. Chief Minister Anandiben Patel briefed Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who has agreed to provide additional companies of paramilitary forces to take the control of the situation after massive violence across the State.
