Mangaluru: Excesses by local policemen during protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act were condemned by activists leaders and netizens here on Thursday.  Two correspondents of a news portal were allegedly manhandled by policemen. Video clippings of police hurling stones at protesters were also making rounds on the social media. A video clipping of police throwing stones at protesters who were inside a mosque too went viral along with another one where policemen were allegedly assaulted a student after forcefully entering into rooms of a hospital.

“Policemen entered a shop and damaged it. They thought that a protester was hiding there. My innocent friend suffered a loss (owing to damage caused to his shop)," a resident told Deccan Chronicle.

 

“Innocent people and students who were in a bus shelter have been lathi-charged by the police. Two innocent people have died in firing, and several injured. The police have tried to silence people by imposing prohibitory orders which is against the Constitution. Though the CM had asked (policemen) not to lathicharge protesters, the police have opened fire in Mangaluru. Police were seen pelting stones and acted like Sangh Parivar (members). There should be a thorough inquiry into this incident and action should be taken against erring officials,” said Shahul S,  general secretary of SDPI.

A disturbing video of policemen surrounding a person with his wife and two kids and forcing him to board a their bus went viral today. The kids were in tears as their father was roughed up by policemen while asking him to board their bus.
