The man succumbed to injuries die, the state seeks RAF from the center.


The violence took place in Rajasthan's Udaipur, in Kherwara town on Saturday, sometime in the evening causing death and at least five injured.

The center employed Rapid action force (RAF) personnel after three days of protests in the southern parts of Rajasthan to let the situation in control.


The violence took place on Thursday across the districts when the teachers'recruitment examination-2018 candidates blocked Udaipur-Ahmedabad highway and caused damaged to the police while pelting stones with the demand of filling of 1,167 general vacant posts with scheduled tribe (ST) candidates.

The Rajasthan's Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has appealed to the protestors to stay calm and claimed that their legitimate demands will be considered. Governor Kalraj Mishra spoke to Gehlot on phone in Jaipur and called principal secretary (home) Abhay Kumar and ADG (law and order) Saurabh Srivastava at Raj Bhawan, directing them to control the situation, it said.


On Saturday, former Udaipur MP Raghuveer Meena and other public representatives of the Dungarpur district met a delegation of the agitating candidates to resolve and reconsider the matter.

Section 144 (prohibition of the gathering of more than 5 people) and the internet cut was applied to districts- Dungarpur, Udaipur, Banswara, and Pratap Garh of southern Rajasthan to condemn any further inconvenience.
