Khargone (Madhya Pradesh): Dozens of Muslim women from different localities in the city rushed to the superintendent of the Khargone police office and submitted a memorandum demanding justice for their relatives arrested in connection with the riots that broke out on April 10.
The Muslim women took to the streets and reached the SP office waving slogans where they met ASP Neeraj Chaurasia. They accused local police of taking unilateral action against their relatives and arrested them without identification.
According to reports, police have so far arrested 182 people in 72 registered FIRs after reported violence in the city following the stone-throwing incident during the Ram Navami procession.
One of the women, Ujma Sheikh, said police arrested children between the ages of 10 and 12 overnight without identification. Not only children, but also arrested many old people. Cops also misbehaved with women, she claimed
Meanwhile, ASP Neeraj Chaurasia denied all allegations made against cops and said police did not arrest anyone without proper identification. If someone was found innocent and arrested by the police, they would be released.
Following the women’s claim that the police arrested many of their relatives during the night, ASP Chourasia clarified that the disbelievers were never found at their homes during the day and did not come to their homes only during the night.
