DySP Nilesh Rane tried to pacify the angry crowd and requested them not to obstruct the police from doing their work, but in vain.

The protesters continued to obstruct the path leading to the site where the authorities had come to undertake the marking. What ensued are clashes between the police and the local women who tried their might to stop the former from reaching the site.
