Why majority of victims are from a particular community

Hyderabad: The Telangana High Court has asked why majority of the victims of alleged police excesses during the lockdown were from a particular community, even as it observed that the counter affidavit filed by police in one of the pleas on their high-handedness lacked all relevant details.

A bench, comprising Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan and Justice B Vijaysen Reddy,asked in its observations whether a minority community was targeted.

It was hearing a batch of public interest litigation petitions on the alleged police excesses on Wednesday.

The bench asked the city police and other respondents to submit a detailed report by June 29 in the particular petition.

In its order in the petition, the court said the counter-affidavit filed by the city police commissioner lacked the relevant details.

In one instance, according to the counter-affidavit, a departmental inquiry has been initiated against a sub- inspector of police, a SHO and an ACP, calling for explanation for failure to discharge their duties responsibly.

The order said the subsequent development or progress in the departmental inquiries need to be informed to the court.

The counter filed by the police said a person, who was allegedly assaulted by police, was not in fact assaulted by them.

According to the police, he fell down while he was running away after noticing the police personnel approaching his area.

But surprisingly, his injury report has not been submitted along with thecounter affidavit, the order said.

In another incident, the petitioner alleged that the police personnel of a particular police station damaged vehicles parked outside homes in a residential area.

The police affidavit claimsthe police had checked the vehicles "using police lathis in order to seewhether coronavirus was present or not."

Expressing surprise over the police explanation, the court sought a complete report on the issue.
