The two leaders – Milind Ekbote of Hindu Ekta Aghadi and Sambhaji Bhide of Shiv Pratisthan – are accused of stoking the violence near Bhima Koregaon and booked under the Scheduled Castes And Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. Maharashtra has been on the boil over the violence in Bhima Koregaon on January 1 that led to the death of 28-year-old Rahul Phatangale and left four others injured. The case against Ekbote and Bhide came on a complaint by Anita Savale, a member of the Bahujan Republican Socialist Party. The case has been shifted to Shikrapur police station, under which Bhima Koregaon falls. The complaint against Mevani and Khalid is being probed at Vishrambaug police station in Pune.
