Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday said that those found guilty of violence during the Jat quota agitation won’t be spared.
Expressing anguish over the incidents during the Jat quota agitation that caused loss of innocent lives and property, Khattar urged people to share any information which can help nab the culprits with the police.
“Each and every person involved in such incidents would be identified and strict action would be taken against them,” the chief minister said in a statement.
Khattar also promised action on the allegations of gang rape at Murthal in Sonepat district.
“The state government is taking serious action on the news report which appeared in the media about alleged inappropriate behaviour with some women during the protest at Murthal in Sonepat district. A special investigation team comprising three senior women police officers has been constituted. One could give any related information or evidence to the team over telephone or through letter or online. If any such untoward incident happened, the guilty would be punished,” Khattar said.
People of all castes and religions have always lived together in the spirit of brotherhood in Haryana, he said. “I have full faith that the people of Haryana would soon move on leaving behind these unfortunate incidents, strengthen the feeling of brotherhood and join the efforts being made by the state government for the development of the state,” he said.
The Haryana government has released two email Ids and a whatsapp number to help people affected by the violence during the Jat agitation get in touch with the chief minister directly.
People can upload any audio or video clips, photograph or any document which they might consider worth bringing to the notice of chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar through the email Ids and whatsapp number — firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and 9501053696.
