A DELEGATION of BJP leaders met Director-General of Police (DGP) Yashpal Singh and demanded action against the police personnel involved in the attack on Kapli village on the night of January 29.

The delegation was led by BJP district president Rakesh Sonkar. State vice president of the party and MLA Premlata Katiyar was also present on the occasion. Hapless villagers who faced the wrath of police personnel were also present along with other members of the delegation.

On January 29, hundreds of villagers of Kapli burnt about dozen vehicles on a private construction company, when a local boy was crushed to death by a vehicle of the company. In retaliation, hundreds of police personnel of Panki and its adjoining police stations, under the leadership of SP (rural) Ratan Srivastav, raided the village late in the night and arrested about 68 villagers.

Incidentally, Kapli village falls under the constituency of BJP MLA Premlata Katiyar.

Members of the delegation demanded a high-level inquiry into the incident and action against those present during the attack on the village. “We have demanded an impartial inquiry into the incident and action against those responsible,” stated Katiyar.

The DGP had assured that an inquiry would be conducted into the incident and if anyone was found guilty, action would be taken against him, added Katiyar.

Meanwhile, a delegation of Mahila Morcha of the BJP handed over a memorandum, in protest against the LPG crisis in the city, addressed to President of India to DM Deepak Kumar. Morcha district president Pramila Pandey said that despite repeated requests, nothing had been done by the district administration to tackle the crisis. Members of the delegation also expressed resentment against the increasing prices of essential commodities in the city.
