Yesterday, two Kashmiri dry fruit vendors were allegedly attacked by a group of men on a busy road at Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh. As per sources, the men belonged to a fringe right-wing group. One of the men also shared a video of assaulting the vendors. Meanwhile, one of them has been arrested.
From last month after the Pulwama attack, several cases are coming across many places of the country of harassing Kashmiri people along with social boycott in different parts of the country.
The incident occurred at around 5 pm on Wednesday in Daliganj in central Lucknow. In the viral video, the attackers are loudly saying that they are assaulting the vendors because they are from Kashmir.
The video showing two men in Saffron Kurtas beating the two dry fruit sellers who were sitting on the road with their dry fruits spreads out on a cloth. One of the defendants even attacked them with a wooden stick. One of the Kashmiri vendors is seen covering his head and requesting the attackers to stop.
The two accused persons were Bajrang Sonkar who has already been arrested by the police and the other one is Himanshu Awasthi, who claims to be the president of the Vishwa Hindu Dal, has not been arrested.
Senior police officer Anand Kumar told the reporters, “This is a very unfortunate and one-off incident which has happened. We will crack down on such incidents with the entire force of the law. Nobody is above the law and nobody can target innocent citizens like this… The strongest possible action will be taken to target innocent Kashmiris.”
National Conference leader Omar Abdullah tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter and wrote: “Dear PM @narendramodi Sahib, this is what you had spoken against & yet it continues unabated. This is the state governed by your handpicked Chief Minister. Can we expect action in this case or do we file your concern & assurances as a jumla, meant to placate but nothing more? (sic)”
