Last week the City was tense with demonstrations, bandhs, etc as an aftermath of the arrest of Owaisi. We were confident that our Police, always alert to prevent disturbances by the diehard followers of Owaisis and MIM, would ensure that nothing untoward happens. But alas, our confidence in our Police in this instance, has been badly shaken. There was stone throwing on a large scale and some were hurt.
When the Police are so alert, we assume that they would do everything to ensure that lethal missiles like stones are not ready at hand. But it transpires that there was a huge heap of rubble with kankar etc in it, which was very handy. WHY DID OUR POLICE NOT SPOT THE READY AVAILABILITY OF STONES, AND WHY DID THEY NOT ARRANGE TO REMOVE THE HEAP?
