Sujith Balasundaram | Bhopal | Sept 29, 2015:: Assaulting an RSS office-bearer for posting objectionable content against AIMIM leader cost dear to the police officials, as a case of attempt to murder and trespass was slapped against an Additional SP Rajesh Sharma, SI Anil Ajmeria and over half-a-dozen policemen while a Town Inspector (TI) Ziaul Haq has been removed from Baihar police station of Balaghat district and further, inquiry is on into the case.
The administrative action came after a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader was allegedly beaten up by policemen in Baihar sub-division of Balaghat district. The RSS leader Suresh Yadav was allegedly beaten up by the police personnel.
The police action came after a complaint made by some local residents about ‘objectionable’ comments made by Yadav against AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi on social media. The complaint was made to the town inspector (TI) of the Baihar police station Ziaul Haq.
Subsequently, Additional SP Rajesh Sharma, TI Ziaul Haq, Sub-inspector Anil Ajmeria, ASI Suresh Vijywar, constable Uikey and half-a-dozen other policemen reached the RSS office.
“Suresh Yadav was taken to police station and upon bringing him to police station he was roughed up on way. Yadav tried to save himself and ran into a medical shop but was chased and again beaten, taken to police station and thrashed again”, allege RSS workers.
Yadav is district pracharak of RSS. As RSS workers came to know about the incident, they informed the organisation leaders. A bandh call was given in Baihar on Monday. Several protests were held, demanding action against the police officials.
Subsequently, a case of attempt to murder was registered against Additional SP Rajesh Sharma, SI Anil Ajmeria and over half-a-dozen policemen. TI Ziaul Haq has been removed from Baihar police station. Further, inquiry is on into the case.
Expressing his anger over police personnel beating a RSS worker in Balaghat district, BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Tuesday attacked the bureaucracy and questioned the state government’s efficiency on the eve of the BJP state unit’s two-day executive meet.
“Such a brazen act by bureaucracy? Beating up the RSS jila pracharak in RSS office in Balaghat is unpardonable,” tweeted Vijayvargiya referring to Sunday’s incident when a RSS worker was severely beaten up by the police.“The way town inspector and goondas beat up the RSS pracharak by entering the RSS office in Balaghat in presence of ASP is an unpardonable act. (I am) highly agitated. Can the bureaucracy be so daring in my government?”
Vijayvargiya’s tweets caused a flutter in the party and the government. Recently, he had attacked the government and bureaucracy over the slow pace of Metro Rail project in Indore.
“The government has taken action in connection with Balaghat incident. Law is taking its own course,” BJP state unit spokesperson Deepak Vijayvargiya told HENB.
State Home Minister Bhupendra Singh announced suspension of ASP Rajesh Sharma, the senior most policeman accused of attack. Singh made the announcement today in Gwalior, where the ruling party is holding its two-day executive meet. The attack also figured in the meet because on Tuesday evening party national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya had tweeted about it, calling the incident as another instance of bureaucracy crossing the line.
Calling it “unpardonable offence”, he alleged that a thana in-charge accompanied by local goondas entered the RSS office and attacked a functionary. The home minister, however, said one incident should not be taken as reflection on the entire bureaucracy.
The Balaghat administration on Wednesday announced a magisterial inquiry into the incident but the RSS was not impressed. “It’s a strategy to buy more time. We want the policemen arrested immediately,’’ RSS leader Prashant Pol told HENB. IG (Balaghat Range) D C Sagar said no arrests had been made so far and that teams were looking for the accused police officials.
A letter written on behalf of the policemen went viral on Wednesday. The unsigned letter questioned the action against policemen arguing that the accused police officials were carrying out their duty.
The the victim of police assault in a BJP run State, RSS pracharak Suresh Yadav is now undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Jabalpur.
