Patna: The section of public, who threw bricks and stones at the police and burned a police jeep and JCBs demolishing the illegal construction in Digha, are having sleepless nights.
On the day of incident (September 5) thousands of men together chased down a handful of policemen. But, now the ball is in Police’s court. According to the unconfirmed reports the police have been ordered to take 1100 suspects under custody. So the police have found a clever way to catch them. The policemen are striking in the zero hour when everyone is asleep.
During the night of the incident they arrested 22 men.
The next night they took 6 men and on Thursday night they caught 12 men. Residents in Digha are terrified by such a move. This has become their worst nightmare in life. Everyone is now a suspect in police’s eye and is afraid that they might be in police’s grab. They are catching anyone for the interrogation.
People say that the worst part is that the innocents too are suffering along with the guilty party.
To be safe from this zero hour strike people are desperately looking for places to hide in the night. Some are spending their night at their relative’s place and some have run away for temporary period. It seems that the police are playing at ‘predator’ who hunts during the night.
Because of this incident the Rajiv Nagar thana now have a new police chief. To assure safety and peace police is posted at each and every corner of Digha and Rajiv Nagar.
