Jat quota stir: Protesters vandalise mall, shops in Kaithal

A large number of stick-welding protesters vandalised a mall and several shops in the violence-hit district today where army and police have been deployed in the wake of the Jat agitation demanding quota in government jobs.

Agitators also set afire a two-wheeler in the district, officials said.

Security personnel dispersed the violent mob to prevent further damage to public and private property.

Curfew was lifted yesterday in Kaithal by the district administration.

Later, several members from non-Jat community took out a protest march against the administration for its alleged failure in providing safety to their shops and commercial establishments.

They raised slogans against the administration, official said.
