Jat leaders threatened to stage a protest in Haryana, demanding reservation and withdrawal of criminal cases against them during the agitation organised last month.

The Jat leaders would be submitting memorandums to the respective deputy commissioners giving a 72-hour deadline for accepting their demands.

During the recent Jat agitation over reservation in government jobs, there were sectarian clashes reported from the state in which 30 people were killed and public and private property worth Rs 10,000 crore was damaged. The agitators had also damaged canals supplying water to Delhi, resulting in a massive water shortage in the national capital.

There were also reports of women being raped in Murthal but the allegations have not been substantiated.
