Sorry you got bashed
CAPTAIN Mahendra Singh Dhoni has sympathised with Indian fans who were baton-charged by police as they queued for tickets to see India’s World Cup clash with South Africa. ‘‘ Police take the action when they feel it is needed,’’ Dhoni said. ‘‘ To avoid a stampede-like situation, they have to resort to lathicharge ( baton-charge). So to always project the police as bad is not an ideal thing. But of course everybody feels bad when fans get beaten up.’’ Ticket-hungry fans, desperate to see Saturday’s match in Nagpur, were batoncharged by police as they queued, witnesses said.
