Who gave the police the right to beat the people?The police department is there to help the people and keep law and order. These days we see many incidents of police resorting to beating the people mercilessly in the course of their duty. We have seen how the police behaved with Jamia students last year. When the public commits any mistake and violate the law, the police are required to arrest them and file a case. If the violation is of not serious nature, they may be counseled and warned not to do such a thing in the future.
The Government announced a lockdown to stop spreading of coronavirus and people are advised not to come out of the house. The people by and large following the directions and cooperating. There may be some instances where the public is forced to go out for necessities. We find many videos in which the police are beating the people with lathis with much force causing injuries. Who gave these people to beat the public? Why don't they first try to explain and make the people understand? The police excesses are to be controlled by the Government.
