One of the protesters, Srinivisan in this NNIS video said, “Yesterday the police beat up people very badly and they (protesters) have been influenced by it.” He further added that some people suffered serious injuries and he especially talked about the village councilor who was seriously injured.
With such thrashing by the police, the situation is not going to improve. There are chances that the protests may change their shape and turn violent, which does not augur well. If the authorities do not handle the situation appropriately, such protests may multiply and may lead to chaos, which the authorities clearly want to avoid.
