Karnal, September 1

Responding to the complaint of the Haryana Congress, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Wednesday sought a report from the District Magistrate and Superintendent of Police, Karnal, in the lathicharge on the farmers and in the video clip of the SDM Ayush Sinha, which went viral on social media in which he was seen purportedly directing the cops to hit those crossing the barricade.

 The Haryana Pradesh Congress state affair in charge Vivek Bansal, state president Kumari Selja, MP Deepender Hooda, former CLP leader Kiran Choudhary, former minister Capt Ajay Yadav, AICC secretary Virender Rathore and other leaders had filed a complaint on August 31 with the NHRC, alleging brutal lathicharge at the Bastara toll plaza on farmers by cops on Saturday.

The Congress leaders also handed over a pen drive of the recording of the SDM Karnal along with the incident to the rights panel.

The leaders alleged that the police were also part of the “conspiracy” and they had acted contrary to the law.

“The NHRC has sought a report in one month and we will submit our report in this regard,” said District Magistrate Nishant Kumar Yadav.

SP Karnal Ganga Ram Punia has not received yet the letter, but he said that he has not received the letter, but he will submit the report after receiving the letter.
