Jhajjar, March 20

All-India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti (AIJASS) chief Yashpal Malik said that police officials were responsible for the violence and arson in Dhani Gopal village of Fatehabad district yesterday.

Interacting with mediapersons after addressing Jat protesters at Rashalvala Chowk here today, Malik said that the samiti would file complaint against such officials for their ‘misdeeds’.

He said that members of the Jat community were not at fault and the officials present at the spot started the violence after lobbing teargas shells. “I shall be able to comment further over the issue after meeting the injured in the evening,” said Malik.

At least 18 police personnel, including DSP and two inspectors, suffered injuries and two police buses were set on fire when Jat agitators turned violent near Dhani Gopal village yesterday.

About lifting of dharnas, Malik said a meeting of the AIJASS executive committee would be convened on March 26 to discuss the prevailing situation, feedback from the community members and response of the state government to their demands.

“The final call about the dharna will be taken at the meeting. However, the community members staging dharnas in the interior areas like Bawal, Nangal Choudhary and Palwal have been asked to take a decision about the dharna on their own,” he maintained.
