Height of intolerance: BJP, affiliates justify Gujjar youths killing

Jammu—Bharatiya Janata Party and its affiliate organisations have started a campaign seeking re-instatement of the police officer who had ordered firing on Gujjars who were resisting eviction from a piece of land in Sarore, Jammu.
Upping the ante, the saffron party and other groups are demanding action against those who they said have grabbed state land.
BJP president for Vijaypur Block Pawan Bakshi had on February 26 blocked the Jammu-Pathankote highway near Bari Brahmana, demanding re-instatement of the station house officer of Bari Brahmana, Bharat Sharma, and action against the alleged land grabbers.
A day after the protest, social organisations known for their affiliation with BJP, addressed a press conference. They too sought re-instatement of the suspended SHO and action against the land grabbers.
BJP spokesperson Prof Verinder Gupta said law should be allowed to take its own course.
“Excesses have been committed by both sides. The Gujjar youth who was killed had attacked the police party. Circumstances show that SHO did nothing wrong.—KR
