The rising cost of petrol and diesel in India is provoking protests in many cities.

Prices at the pumps have increased almost daily for the past three weeks, despite low oil prices.

The government says it has raised fuel taxes to offset the economic crisis caused by the lockdown.

Critics accuse leaders of making huge profits from the struggling poor.
