“Those found responsible for such an inhuman act will not be spared,” said he in a statement issued here.
The CM, while ordering an immediate inquiry into the incident, also directed the concerned authorities to provide the injured children the best medical treatment facilities.
“This is absolutely outrageous and will not at all be tolerated,” the CM said.
Later, however, the case ended in an anti-climax after much ballyhoo as the father of a child who was seriously injured by the tough Punjab riot police changed his statement allegedly under the pressure of top officials.
“My son got injured after falling on the road. Police have got nothing to do with his injury,” the poor father said giving the cops a clean chit.
