Police also accused him of carrying an unauthorized weapon, while BJP leaders had claimed that he has a proper license for the firearm with an all-India permit.
During such an act of police atrocity, on-duty Sikh security official Balwinder Singh was also attacked. The turban of the security officer of BJP leader Priyangu Pandey was pulled by the police in full public view, and he was dragged on the street.
Opposing against the incident, Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga wrote that ‘what is happening in West Bengal is unforgivable. The violent attack on security officer Balwinder Singh and disrespect of his turban by West Bengal Police is a humiliating and blameworthy act’.
The BJP leader urged the National Commission for Minorities to take a prosecution against the erring police officers as soon as possible, asserting that otherwise, they will have no other option but to exercise to oppose and legal action.
The rally was organized by the youth wing of BJP protesting against the continued violence against BJP workers and leaders in the state. The protesters had planned to stage a protest in front of Nabanna, the state secretariat, but the state govt refused permission for the protest and closed the secretariate for two days citing sanitization.
The BJYM and BJP workers still went ahead with the protests, which was brutally prevented by the police. The police were seen hurling country-made bombs on the protests, apart from lathi charging them.
