Director General of Police (DGP) KP Singh today said some anti-social elements carrying arms had mixed up with Jat agitators at Dhani Gopal in Fatehabad yesterday. They had attacked police personnel in which 18 cops, including a DSP and two inspectors, were injured.

Singh, who visited Fatehabad today to meet the injured cops and take stock of the situation, said the miscreants attacked the police and mediapersons and also teased women cops who were on duty. Two women cops were also among those injured.

He said he had met the cops and the three mediapersons injured yesterday and was relieved that none of them had suffered serious injuries.

The DGP announced Class I certificates for all police personnel injured in the clash and an award of Rs 5,000 each for them as well as the injured mediapersons.

The government would felicitate the cops for their bravery. “The police will not spare anyone. The miscreants will be brought to book and stern action under the law will be taken against them,” he said.

Some persons had been named in the case registered while several unnamed persons had also been booked, the DGP said.

He praised the police for acting with restraint and said had the police used excessive force due to the provocation, damage could have been greater.

He had directed the SP to bear all expenses of the medical treatment of the injured. He would request the DC to compensate the mediapersons for the financial loss they had suffered, Singh added.

The agitators had held three mediapersons hostages, snatched their mobiles, took out cash from their wallets and smashed their cameras in yesterday’s incident.
