Milind Ekbote, accused in Bhima Koregaon violence, has been detained by Pune police. According to reports, Ekbote was detained from his house at Shivajinagar in Pune earlier today. 

Ekbote was refused another anticipatory bail by the Supreme Court. He was granted anticipatory bail until March 14. 

A couple of FIRs were registered against Ekbote alleging his role in the violence at Bhima-Koregaon. 

Scores of people from the Dalit community gathered at a village in Pune to mark the 200th year of the Battle of Bhima Koregaon earlier this year.

Clashes broke out between villagers from Maharashtra's Koregaon Bhima, Pabal, and Shikrapur.
