India deploys army to stop caste-related violence in Gujarat

The Indian army patrolled riot-hit areas of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state of Gujarat on Aug. 27 after the death toll rose to seven in two days of caste-related violence. 

Clashes spread after police arrested a young leader of the influential Patel clan who led a huge rally on Aug. 25 to demand more government jobs and college places for members of his community.
