Several people were seriously injured by the beating of SDM. One of the shopkeepers had lost his hand.
On Thursday, SDM Ashok Chaudhary started a campaign against those who do not use masks and social distress, near Biltharrod Tehsil of Ballia district. The SDM, who arrived with the police, suddenly started beating up the occupants. After this there was a stampede. People started running here and there. After beating the people in the tehsil premises along with the police and home guards, he went towards the market. While passing through the road, the bike riders showered sticks. He then reached the Chowkia Mor where Rajat Chaurasia, who was at his grocery store, pulled him out of the shop and started beating him. One of his hands was ripped from the beating of SDM and started bleeding. Ashutosh Chaurasia, who came to save his brother and put his side in front of the SDM, was also beaten with sticks by the sub-officer and sent to the police station with the soldiers.
People say that there is a provision for taking action under penalty and epidemic act for not following social distancing and not applying mask. In such a situation, it is completely wrong to beat people with sticks by SDM.
