3. Shinde defends crackdown on protesters

: As the national capital witnessed violent clashes between security forces and protesters over the weekend, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Monday justified the police crackdown, saying that some hooligans and ‘goondas’ had entered the crowd following which the action was taken.

In an interview to CNN-IBN, Shinde said, “Hooligans and goondas had joined the protesters and were damaging public property and pelting stones, after which the police took action.”

The Home Minister told the news channel, “The protesters had marched right upto the North Block and were trying to move into the Rashtrapati Bhawan, had this happened then you would have criticised me.”

He further informed that a probe has been ordered into the violence at the India Gate. When asked about the identification of the miscreants who had joined the protests, he said, “In a crowd of three thousand people it is hard to identify such people.”
