Jalandhar, December 4

The youth protesting against the alleged anomalies in the Punjab Police recruitment for the past two days were lathicharged by the police here on Saturday.

They had come to block the NH1 at the PAP flyover.

Some girls were said to be injured and they had been hospitalised.

Jalandhar DCP Jagmohan Singh denied any lathi charge. He said the protesting youth who had come from Moga, Bathinda and other towns had tried to obstruct the entry of eligible aspirants for physical trials at the PAP Complex and were not ready to move and hence they had to be pushed aside. An FIR against 60-odd youth is being lodged at Navi Baradari Police Station. A few of them have been detained.
