There were at least four incidents of government buses being stoned in Pune and Thane as the Bharatiya Janata Party, Shiv Sena, Left, Samajwadi Party and others called for a nation-wide shutdown to protest the recent hike in petrol prices.

Besides, the shutdown is being supported by anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare and even Mumbai's 'Dabbawallas' who will not provide their regular tiffin delivery services today.
