Gujarat: 10 arrested for attacking police in Vadodra’s Kasam Aala Mosque area, main accused Nazir and 6 others absconding

A team of Gujarat police had come under violent attacks with swords, sticks, bottles and stones by a violent mob of over 50 people when they tried to implement lockdown in the Kasam Aala Mosque area after Sehri on Monday morning at around 5 am.

The Gujarat Police has arrested 10 of the 17 named accused reportedly involved in an incident of mob violence against a police team that took place on Monday near Kasam Aala mosque in Nagarwada area of Vadodara. A First Information Report (FIR) was registered after a violent mob of over 50 people attacked the cops while they were trying to enforce lockdown, in the wee hours of the morning at one the worst Coronavirus-hit areas of the city.

When they provoked the mob, the police came under a volley of stones and bottles. Reportedly, Nazir also threw a bicycle at the cops. More backup was called in and the police were finally able to overpower the mob.
