As the Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh had assured, the Bilaspur district administration has ordered a probe into the Tuesday’s cane charging instance by police on the Congress workers as they were protesting.
Collector P Dayanand has issued orders to this effect today itself.
The probe will be carried out by Additional Collector Bhagwan Singh Uike.
It has also been informed that the probe will involve investigation into the seven points.
The first point is whether the Congress had obtained the requisite permissions for the staging protest and whether there was enough of the police deployment at the protest site.
The circumstaces that led to this cane charging will also be probed apart from ascertaining if the use of force was necessary at all.
It will also be investigated if the provisions of the law were adequately followed when use of force was finally given a go ahead.
The Congress has been alleging that he made a comment making comparison of the party with the garbage but it is not certain if he made that comment at all.
It is in this context that party workers had gone out to protest.>
