Allahabad cops ‘hand over Prime Minister protesters to mob’

Allahabad police on Saturday allegedly beat four youths and handed them over to a mob to thrash them again after the young men showed black flags to visiting Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a public event.…  Soon after Modi began his speech, the young men stood up, pulled out black flags from their pockets and held them up. They also chanted “Modi, go back” and “Modi, listen to the women protesting against the citizenship law”, the eyewitness said.

“The police dragged them away from the cordoned area where Modi was addressing the meeting and beat them with batons and rifle-butts. There was commotion for a few minutes,” he said.

“I heard some Modi supporters ask the police to hand the youths over to them to be punished. The police did. The mob rained punches and kicks on them for about 15 minutes while the police watched from a distance. Then the police took them away in a jeep.”…
