New Delhi, Apr 12: The National Human Rights Commission has issued notices to the Chief Secretary, DGP, Government of Tamil Nadu and Superintendent of Police, Tirupur to produce reports within two weeks on a widely reported incident of police excess on a group of people of 300, who were protesting against the opening of a liquor vend in their residential area.
Reportedly, the police started indiscriminately beating them with sticks due to which more than 20 people were seriously injured yesterday.
A senior police officer also slapped a woman and hit another one while chasing them.
The Commission has observed that it appears that the police took law into their hands by exceeding their power in resorting to indiscriminate beating of the protestors.
In fact a senior officer himself had gone to the extent of beating women who were standing helpless and defenseless.
