Jamshedpur, June 6: The situation in Mohammadan Line in Sakchi has been tense but under control ever since India registered a comprehensive win over Pakistan in the Champions Trophy match on Sunday.
Members of Anjuman-E-Bahar on Tuesday met deputy commissioner Amit Kumar and accused the police of acting as a mute spectator as the incident took place in front of the police.
According to the memorandum submitted to DC, the delegation of Anjuman-E-Bahar said, around 20-25 bike borne youths entered the Mohammadan Line from Shitla Mandir road at past midnight on June 4 and were shouting communal slogans after on India’s win over Pakistan and when the locals tried to protest they started pelting stones but the police was acting as a mute spectator and did nothing to curb them.
This is not the first incident that has happened here and the residents of the area are now living in fear. The police administration should make arrangements for setting up of CCTV cameras on all four entries to the Mohammadan Line, barriers should be put in all the lanes so that after late night no outsiders can enter the area once the barriers are closed. They also demanded for boundry wall of Imam Bada so that outsiders can enter the area.
It may be noted that as Team India won the match the fans came out on streets and started celebrating. A group of bike-borne youths had taken out a procession and shouted slogans in favour of Indian cricket team. Suddenly some youths started pelting stones on the fans.
Ranjit Kumar, a driver associated with the Sakchi police station and Rajesh Kumar Ravi, the body-guard of Sakchi police station OC were injured during the incident. Both had sustained head injuries and were administered first-aid at the Tata Main Hospital.
