Able and timely action by cops prevent group clash at North Nagpur

nagpurriotNagpur: Two groups had allegedly clashed when one group said some vile statement against the other and soon, the group clash escalated to a mammoth in-fighting. Stones were pelted, bottles were broken, tyres were burn’t etc.

In an exclusive talk with Nagpur Today, Commissioner of Police K K Pathak said that even though the policemen were deputed to monitor and man various points to ensure safety and security of the visitors of Deekshabhoomi and KP Ground, we had mobilized senior officials and policemen to the spot within 25 minutes of the occurrence and had succeeded in bringing the situation under control. Failing this, the situation could have escalated into riotous proportions.

However, as soon as the Police Commissioner K K Pathak came to know about the incident, he directed all senior police officials including Jt CP Anoop Singh and other DCPs, Rapid Action Force and Quick Response Teams to the spot along with a posse of armed cops who brought the situation under control.

The cops not only brought the tense atmosphere under control within a few hours, they succeeded in calling the leaders of both the groups to sit together amicably and resolve the issue. The cops have made some arrests of trouble makers.
