In the ongoing Bharat Bandh, protesters from Dalit groups and other organisations on Monday morning blocked rail traffic movement and stopped trains at several places in Bihar, Punjab and Odisha.

The strike was called against the Supreme Court’s order to dilute the stringent provisions mandating immediate arrest under the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities (POA) Act.

The bandh is reportedly being supported by several groups such as the Peasants and Workers Party, the Prakash Ambedkar-led Bharip Bahujan Mahasangh, the Centre of Indian Trade Unions, the Jati Aant Sangharsh Samiti, the Rashtriya Seva Dal, and National Dalit Movement for Justice, among others.
