RSS on Monday rejected allegations that some of its workers were involved in thrashing a group of student protesters along with police personnel outside its headquarters in central Delhi two days back.
A video on Monday emerged in which some Delhi Police personnel along with some unidentified men were seen thrashing protesters and dragging female activists by their hair outside the RSS office during a demonstration on Saturday over dalit student Rohith Vemula’s suicide.
“No RSS worker was there at that time. If somebody feels that there was some highhandedness then there is option of inquiry, law. Police must have done whatever they found was appropriate,” incharge of RSS media unit of Delhi Rajiv Tuli said.
Reacting strongly to the assault, AAP leader Sanjay Singh, in a press conference, alleged that BJP and RSS workers were involved in thrashing the students along with police. Congress called it a “brutal assualt” by police on a group of “unarmed protesters” and demanded action against guilty policemen.
Delhi police Commissioner BS Bassi said he has directed senior officials to investigate the matter and see if there were any “indiscretions”.
