Derogatory remarks about B R Ambedkar on the social networking site provoke a gathering of nearly 500 to resort to stone pelting and tyre-burning at Bandra, Khar and Andheri
Chaos erupted on the roads and bylanes of Bandra and Khar late last night after someone created a page termed ‘I Hate Ambedkar’ on Facebook.
The site allegedly also contained some derogatory comments about Ambedkar and as the news spread, a huge crowd of around 500 people gathered at Pali Naka in Bandra and on Carter Road shouting slogans and pelting stones on passing cars and buses.
Another massive crowd gathered at the Khar police station to protest and demand police action.
The protest did not stop there and people continued their rampage and set car tyres on fire at Khar and then joined other protesters forming a huge mob on Andheri Link Road.
The police finally decided to call in SRPF platoons and the situation was brought under control.
