Maharashtra govt regrets police baton-charge on disabled students

The Maharashtra government on Tuesday expressed regret over the police baton-charge on disabled students in Pune. 

Several thousand deaf youth were protesting in front of the Social Welfare Commissionerate in Pune on Monday afternoon when the police action took place, resulting in injuries to 35 students.

Replying to a demand by Leader of Opposition in the Maharashtra Legislative Council Dhananjay Munde to suspend the errant policemen, state Revenue Minister Chandarakant Patil said an inquiry had been instituted into the incident. 

The Shiv Sena, a constituent of the Devendra Fadnavis-led government, demanded a judicial probe. Patil, who is the leader of the Upper House, said Dilip Kamble, minister of state for social justice, would meet the students. 

Action would be taken against those responsible (for the lathicharge), Patil told the House.
