Ahmedabad, Aug 26 (RDI IBNS): At least seven people have lost their lives in Gujarat, which witnessed violence since Tuesday night following the brief detention of 21-year-old Hardik Patel, who led a massive rally in Ahmedabad demanding reservation for the Patel community.

There have been fresh clashes in parts of Ahmedabad, which is under curfew after clashes and cases of arson and stone-throwing late Tuesday night. Speaking to NDTV, Hardik Patel said his movement is non-violent and would intensify. If anything goes wrong, it will be the governments fault, he said.
