The Punjab Police on Wednesday baton-charged a group of persons holding a protest outside Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann’s home in Sangrur seeking a range of demands, The Tribune reported.
Mukesh Malaud, the president of Zameen Prapati Sangharash Committee, claimed that 22 of its members suffered injuries in the clashes.
“As per our announced programme, we were peacefully marching towards the residence of CM, but cops tried to stop us with big barricades, trucks and other means,” he said. “But when they failed, they used force on us and our 22 members suffered injuries.”
Kashmir Ghugsher, from the Pendu Khet Mazdoor Union, said that several members of the organisations were hit by batons, The Indian Express reported.
“I recall Bhagwant Mann’s concern when the BJP-led Haryana government had done such barricading during the farmer agitation in 2020-2021,” he said. “Now the same has been done by his government outside a colony where he has a rented house and he hardly visits that place.”
Visuals by ANI showed police personnel using batons to control a group of protestors.
