The U.S. Consulate General in Mumbai has received reports from law enforcement sources and local media of protests and disruptions in parts of Maharashtra, including Mumbai, in response to a call for a state-wide strike or “bandh” by some groups. The situation is expected to remain fluid throughout the day.
All U.S. citizens are advised to exercise caution and follow local police advisories in avoiding routes affected by protests. The Mumbai police have issued an advisory to city residents to refrain from believing or spreading rumors and to verify facts before posting anything on social media.
Please help us spread this information to other U.S. citizens in your area.
