GURGAON: Villagers in Nuh’s Singar attacked a police team with stones and sticks on Friday afternoon and freed two youths who were picked up in connection with the July 31 communal clash. Three cops suffered injuries and are being treated in a hospital.
Late on Friday evening, nine villagers, including six women, were arrested in connection with the attack. The three injured cops are sub-inspector Vineet, head constable Amar Singh and constable Naveen.
In the morning, the crime unit in Punhana received a tip-off that two youths allegedly involved in the Nuh communal clash were hiding in Singar. A police team raided the village and nabbed the two youths. As the cops were about to leave, their vehicles were pelted with stones. Repeated calls not to interfere with the cops fell on deaf ears. The police team even fired a few rounds in the air, but to no avail.
By the time reinforcements arrived from the nearby Bichhor police station, the villagers had freed the two youths.
Malkhan Singh, the SHO of Bichhor police station, said an FIR had been registered against the villagers under sections 148 (rioting with weapon), 332 (causing harm to deter public servant from performing his duty, 353 (causing an obstruction in the duty of a public servant with the use of assault and criminal force with the intention to stop the public servant from performing his duty), 186 (obstructing public servant from performing duty), 224 (resistance or obstruction by a person to his lawful apprehension), 225 (resistance or obstruction to lawful apprehension of another person) and 307 (attempt to murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and relevant provisions of the Arms Act.
“We have arrested nine villagers as of now. We are searching for the others,” he added.
This is the second time in 15 days that a police team has come under attack while conducting raids in connection with the communal clash. Two weeks ago, cops were attacked in Tirwada village of Punhana when they had gone to arrest a few men who had allegedly attacked the religious procession on July 31.
So far, the police in Nuh have registered 61 FIRs and made 292 arrests in the aftermath of the violence. Of these, 49 FIRs are in connection with the July 31 clash while the remaining 12 are for hate speeches and provocative posts on social media.
A senior police officer said cops in Nuh had come under attack earlier too.
“Such attacks are not new here. Several times, villagers, even minors, attack cops when they go to arrest some accused,” he added.
