The Marathi Kranti Morcha group represents people from India’s Maratha caste, which is predominantly made up of farmers. Decreasing agriculture profits and a lack of jobs and education opportunities have led to the group’s 57 prior protests. Wednesday’s march also saw demonstrators demanding justice for the rape and murder of a 14-year-old Maratha girl in July of last year, according to the Hindustan Times and the Times of India.
