15 miscreants arrested for forcing Muslims to shave beards

Mumbai: The curfew has lifted in the riot-hit Dhule Township and its suburbs in East Maharashtra and police has geared up mass arrest for investigations. According to the sources in Dhule police, during last 15 days 310 people have been arrested for links to different activities. More than two hundreds were taken into judicial custody while the rest is still in police custody. Relief and rehabilitation work has started for riot victims as well.

The police have arrested those 15 culprits who forced Majeed Mansoori, Anwar Panjari and Aarif Panjari to shave their beards during the riot in Khandala village 30 Km from Dhule. Majeed Mansoori informed this correspondent that the DSP called us to identify the culprits. We singled out those 15 persons who not only forced us but stopped Namaz and Azan through Loudspeaker in the mosque. He also said that police have assured all protection of our homes and village but we did not return to our homes. We still fear that miscreants may retaliate on us any time.

The police filed case under article No. 506, 452, 149, 295, 147, 153 and 143 of the IPC yet police are probing the veracity of the case.
