As per news report of NDTV, A day after intense clashes and stone-throwing in Gwalior, violent protests were reported from the Laxmibai Nagar railway station in Indore. Protesters blocked two trains and left at least five policemen injured - including a sub-inspector who was hit on his ear with a stone. Soldiers from the army were called to guard the Mhow cantonment town in Indore to stop rampaging mobs. The protests defied calls for calm by Chief Minister Chouhan who on Wednesday had announced that 'Agniveers' will be given priority in state police service recruitment "Soldiers who serve under the Agnipath scheme will be given priority in recruitment in Madhya Pradesh police," he had said.
