Several trains have been cancelled, partially cancelled or diverted following instances of violence in Ahmedabad and other parts of Gujarat during the patel rally.
The Western Railway, in an official statement on Wednesday evening, said, "Due to public agitation in Ahmedabad Division, some Western Railway trains are cancelled, partially cancelled and diverted."
Till now at least six people have been killed in Gujarat after the Patel community's agitation demanding OBC status became violent. According to The Hindu, five people were killed in police firing.
Army and paramilitary forces have been deployed in Ahmedabad - a first since the 2002 Godhra riots. Chief Minister Anandiben Patel, however, has requested Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh for additional companies of paramilitary forces to control of the situation.
After the police arrested Hardik Patel, convener of the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti, the protests turned violent on Tuesday evening. Clashes erupted in several areas of Ahmedabad, Surat, Mehsana, Visnagar, and Unjha, following which curfew was imposed.
