In the village of Baduria in West Bengal, residents blocked a road in protest against the insufficient distribution of food and other supplies. Through the lock down most people are not able to work so they are dependent on aid from the old state. When police forces arrived, clashes broke out.

In Ahmedabad in Gujarat, the masses also erected barricades to protest against the lack of food and attacked police forces deployed to enforce the curfew. In the course of the clashes several cops were injured. According to the police, 15 people got arrested.
