According to sources, the mobile phones and gold ornaments of those who participated were stolen. Equipment, including loud speakers were fully destroyed. “In spite of the camp being wrecked and people being injured, police remain callous to the entire incident.

In fact eminent persons related to government machinery, including the MLA have sought settlement of the matter, with an offer of compensation,” said sources under condition of anonymity.

The camp which began on 24 December 2016 was attended by people from all over the country. As many as nine people were injured in the attack that was unleashed.
