Kore­gaon Bhima Com­mit­tee De­mands Ar­rest Of Kore­gaon Bhima Per­pe­tra­tors

Citadel - - FLASHBACK -

The mem­bers of the Kore­gaon Bhima Co-or­di­na­tion Com­mit­tee claimed that the Jan­uary 1 vi­o­lence was pre-planned, be­sides pos­ing ques­tions on the role of Milind Ek­bote and Samb­haji Bhide in the vi­o­lence at Kore­gaon Bhima. The com­mit­tee, con­sti­tuted fol­low­ing the un­rest on Jan­uary 1, rec­om­mended strict ac­tion against the real cul­prits and for­ma­tion of a Spe­cial In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team (SIT) to con­duct an in­quiry. The com­mit­tee mem­bers al­leged that Milind Ek­bote and Samb­haji Bhide in­sti­gated the vi­o­lence at Kore­gaon Bhima. Deputy Mayor Sid­dharth Dhende, a mem­ber of the com­mit­tee, said the panel was formed by the ru­ral po­lice af­ter the vi­o­lence and was told to sub­mit a re­port. A de­tailed re­port would be sent to the In­spec­tor-Gen­eral of Po­lice (Kol­ha­pur range), Vish­was Nan­gre-Patil, next week. Dhende said the com­mit­tee found lapses on the part of po­lice in pro­vid­ing se­cu­rity on Jan­uary 1, when they were aware of a pos­si­ble law and or­der cri­sis. The com­mit­tee rec­om­mended an in­quiry into the fail­ure of the lo­cal po­lice au­thor­i­ties in han­dling the sit­u­a­tion. It also de­manded to ar­rest Ek­bote, Bhide and other mis­cre­ants, who were in­volved in spread­ing un­rest, at the ear­li­est.
