The Hush Post: RSS ideologue and Delhi University professor Rakesh Sinha was caught and even rounded up by the police on Monday. Policemen thought that he was part of the Dalit protest.
Sinha said he was detained by Noida police, who thought he one of the Dalit protesters.
“I was going to take part in a panel discussion at a media house in Noida when I was pulled inside a police jeep. There were eight policemen led by the SHO Noida, who were using abusive language. When I asked them why I was detained, they simply said I was free to go now,” Sinha said as per the NDTV report.
“The police later said that they suspected me to be a Dalit protester. I appeal to the police that basic human rights and dignity of a person should be kept in mind,” Sinha said.
Yesterday there was a country-wide bandh on a call given by various Dalit organisations to protest against the apex court’s ruling on amendments under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act which took a violent turn and as many as nine people were killed.
