"India Caste Unrest: 'Ten Million Without Water' In Delhi"

"More than 10 million people in India's capital are without water despite the army regaining control of its key water source after protests, officials say.

Keshav Chandra, head of Delhi's water board, told the BBC it would take "three to four days" before normal supplies resumed to affected areas.

Jat community protesters demanding more government jobs seized the Munak canal, the city's main water source on Friday.

Sixteen people have been killed and hundreds hurt in three days of riots."
