A mob of sword-wielding males on Monday attacked policemen, injuring no less than 10 of them, after being refused to carry a spiritual procession amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A video of the incident confirmed them barging into the gurudwara, break barricades and assault the cops.
“Permission for Hola Mohalla wasn’t granted resulting from COVID-19. Gurudwara committee was knowledgeable and so they stated that they’d do it contained in the gurudwara. Committee had stated they’d do it inside Gurudwara premises itself. However round four pm when Nishan Sahib was dropped at gate, they began arguing and 300-400 youth broke the gate and marched outdoors. Police personnel suffered accidents, autos obtained broken,” Nanded SP stated.
In the meantime, an FIR has been registered and a probe is underway.
