It was the first day of 2018. Rahul Fatangale a 28-year-old man was returning home after spending an entire day at his garage when a stone hit his head amid the clashes between Dalits and some alleged right-wing groups in Bhima Koregaon district of Pune, Maharashtra. Fatangale succumbed to the injury and Bhima Koregaon which has been a symbol of pride for the Dalit struggle again came to the spotlight.
