According to Cuttack DSP Akholeshwar Singh, Mangalabag Police IIC received reports of tension brewing at Kesharpur after a bone was apparently discovered at a Mosque. When the IIC along with his team reached the spot to investigate the matter, things turned violent after locals started pelting stones at the police when they were told to disperse. The cops resorted to baton charge to control the situation.

“We have received videos of several men involved in the incident. They will be arrested and produced in the court. I appeal the denizens to follow government orders and cooperate with the police in maintaining law and order. Violators will be dealt with strictly,” said Singh.

Incidents of Muslim mobs attacking the police during the lockdown have been extremely frequent.

In another such incident in Mainpuri, Uttar Pradesh, a Muslim mob had attacked the Police for advising them to avoid Namaz during the coronavirus pandemic.
