Internet Services Suspended in Navi Mumbai, Day After Violent Maratha Protests

Internet services were suspended on Thursday, 26 July as a precautionary measure in adjoining Navi Mumbai, where an uneasy calm prevailed a day after violence during the Maratha quota stir. The services, which were suspended on Thursday, to prevent rumour mongering on social media and online platforms, will be restored on Friday, police said. Around 20 policemen, including eight officers, were injured in stone-pelting by protesters in Navi Mumbai on Wednesday during the bandh called by Maratha organisations to demand of quota for the community in government jobs and education.
