Curfews, which were imposed after the agitation by the Patel community seeking reservation under OBC quota turned violent, have been lifted from three out of nine Police station areas here today.

Violence that had broken out in some parts of Ahmedabad and Surat on Tuesday escalated around evening after the police took Hardik Patel, the convener of the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti, into custody.

However, by the time Hardik was released, the violence had spread to several parts of Gujarat.
