Maharastra minister for Minority Affairs Arif Naseem Khan on Tuesday said he was not happy with how the police handled the situation in Dhule. Khan was speaking after meeting riot victims. "I am not at all happy with the police action. I have sought a judicial inquiry," he said.
Four members of the minority community died in a police firing on Sunday. The community complained the police action was biased and the police indulged in religious taunts while shooting and beating up people. State Minorities Commission chairman Munaf Hakeem, who also visited the riot-affected areas, said the police seemed to treat people as enemies rather than citizens. "This is not a good precedent."
Police defended the action saying they were singled out for attack. "Injuries to police tell the story. I cannot recollect another such attack," DGP Javed Ahmed said.
