dabholkar1-300x202Nashik: Various organisations, including CPI(M) and CITU, took out a protest march here condemning the killing of the anti-superstition activist Dr Narendra Dabholkar.

Activists of these organisations and that of Andhashraddha Nirmulan Samiti, the outfit headed by Dhabolkar gathered at the Hutatma Smarak in front of the collectorate to condemn Dabholkar’s killing and later took out a peaceful march in which a large number of youth participated.

However, four youth were rounded up by the police during the march for allegedly “disrupting traffic”, as informed by Police.

Dr Dabholkar was the founder-chairman of the Samiti which challenged superstitious blind traditions and practices as well as the editor of a magazine called ‘Sadhana’. He was shot dead this morning at close range by two unidentified assassins at Omkareshwar Bridge in Pune.
