Women celebrating Holi attacked on eve of festival: Bandi Sanjay

Must read

Tension prevailed at Chengicherla, on the outskirts of the city, on Wednesday when the police tried to prevent the BJP national general secretary Bandi Sanjay Kumar from visiting the place which witnessed a skirmish between two groups of people.
Sanjay Kumar visited Chengicherla to console the tribal women, who were injured in the skirmish. A large number of BJP activists too converged on the place on knowing that Sanjay Kumar came there.

Later, the police allowed Sanjay Kuamr to visit the place and speak to those who were injured in the incident.
He alleged that poor women involved in organising festivities on the eve of Holi were attacked by anti-social elements.
Sanjay Kumar, who visited Changicherla where the clash occurred between members of two groups belonging to different communities on the eve of Holi, alleged police high-handedness against the women and others.
He alleged an attempt by police and government to portray as if the residents of the locality were at fault.
“The programme with devotional songs was going on that day. Some people came and asked it to be stopped. It was stopped. The problem was solved. Even then about 300 to 500 of those related to Rohingya and anti-social elements came and attacked them. Who was at fault? Who came,” he told reporters.
The “attackers” came to the place where Holi was being celebrated, he alleged.
He demanded action against police officers who behaved in a high-handed manner.
Members of two groups belonging to different communities clashed and pelted stones at each other following arguments over “playing loud music” near a religious place at Chengicherla on the city’s outskirts, police said on Monday.
Mild tension prevailed in the area on Sunday evening after a scuffle broke out between the two groups, in which four persons suffered minor injuries as the police dispersed the crowd.
Later, Bandi Sanjay along with a few activists went to the houses of the victims amid police restrictions. He inquired about the reasons for the attacks.
After consoling the injured women, he demanded that the Congress explain whether the attack on Hindus was its “minority declaration.”

Sanjay Kumar demanded the government suspend the police responsible for the Chengicherla incident. He demanded the state government initiate stringent action against the attackers.
