Muslim woman thrashed by Police - DOTO

Muslim woman thrashed by Police

Even after Section 144 CrPC (banning assembly of four or more people) was imposed in the riot-hit city of Khargone, Madhya Pradesh, police officials mercilessly broke open the gates of Bilal Masjid on the wee hours of April 11 and barged into the house of a 70-year-old woman whose home is situated right in front of the mosque. In a video shared on social media, policemen can be seen storming into the mosque and creating an atmosphere of fear. The old woman is heard requesting the men to stop. She even calls them “beta” (son). Shaken by the events, the injured old woman said, “The policemen broke the fridge, looted cash, and hit me.” According to her, the policemen severely thrashed the women present in the house and took all the valuables. There were no male members present at that time. "These men break the door of her house, barge into her home. Beat up the women badly...loot all the valuables and go back to vandalising the Masjid". "All women in the family are severely hurt and are hospitalised. She asked those men to stop" tweeted Sharjeel Usmani
