Dhangar community man commits suicide claiming cause of reservation
An officer of MIDC Paithan police station said that Parmeshwar had asked his parents for money for attending a Dhangar reservation rally in Pune.
A 22-year-old man belonging to the Dhangar community allegedly committed suicide in Paithan tehsil of the district last night, with his family claiming that he ended his life for the cause of reservation.
The deceased was identified as Parmeshwar Baban Ghongde, a resident of Balanagar. While the Marathas in Maharashtra are agitating for reservation in jobs and education, the demand of Scheduled Tribe status for the Dhangar (shepherd) community in the state is also being made.
