Rajsamand/Udaipur: Policemen in Rajasthan were injured after hundreds of activists, belonging to right-wing groups, attacked police personnel during a demonstration.

A migrant labour from West Bengal was murdered, following which protests broke out demanding death penalty against the Shambu Lal Regar. The protestors also shouted slogans against right-wing groups.

The video of the protest went viral, thus enraging the right-wing, who held a demonstration of their own, demanding that the ones in the video clip be charged.

To try and control the unruly right-wing protestors, police lathi-charged them. The ensuing clash led to injuries on both sides.

Shambu Lal, the accused who is now in custody, had hacked a Muslim migrant labourer in a bid to ‘save Hindu girls’ and had called his action a war against Love Jihad.

The clash between protesters and police took place near Court Circle in Udaipur around 5 pm. Activists had gathered at the spot, defying prohibitory orders in Udaipur and Rajsamand.

Sudhir Joshi, additional superintendent of police, was among those injured in the clash, said the police. They also claimed that at least 20 activists were also detained.

The video clip, against which the Hindu outfits were protesting, was shot at Chetak Circle and has been widely circulated on social media, messaging apps.

Udaipur Inspector General of Police, Anand Srivastava said that the prohibitory orders will continue for a couple of days depending on the situation.

Meanwhile, state Bajrang Dal chief Indrajit Singh claims that Udaipur SP had assured him of action against those in the video.
