BUNDELKHAND: Policemen in Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led BJP government in Madhya Pradesh made protesting farmers strip down to their undies and beat them up inside the police station for hours.
The protest turned violent after district collector did not bother to meet the farmers nor receive their list of demands. The police use teargas, water cannons and batons. More than 20 farmers were injured in the protest.
It didn’t end at just the use of tear-gas shells, the police allegedly detained a group of farmers, beaten them up and also forcibly made them stripped down to their underwear while they were holed up in a police station.
