Quota agitation: Curfews lifted from 3 out of 9 Police Station areas in Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad, Aug 28 (ANI): Curfews have been lifted from three out of nine Police station areas in Ahmedabad on Friday. The curfews were imposed after agitation, by the Patel community seeking reservation under OBC quota, turned violent.

Residents said that the situation was stable now. Violence that had broken out in some parts of Ahmedabad and Surat on Tuesday escalated around evening after the police took Hardik Patel, the convener of the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti, into custody.

However, by the time Hardik was released, the violence had spread to several parts of Gujarat.
