They also damaged many of passing cars and buses.

Late in the night, prohibitory orders under Section 144 were imposed all over the city.

The rioting took place over allegations that two persons the police had claimed to have shot in an armed encounter early in the morning saying they were carjackers had actually been picked up from their homes around midnight on Tuesday by a police SI and four constables. Predictably, the cops denied the charge.

The rioting began around 5.30 pm but the New Bus Stand police post and some vehicles were still smouldering at 8.30 pm. Parts of Grand Trunk Road and the Delhi-Meerut highway, littered with shattered glass of passing vehicles and burning wreckage of a few, had to be blocked to traffic for almost two hours.

Mobs also vandalized the office of the city police chief, Anant Dev, around 10 pm when this report was being filed.

A heavy contingent of the Provincial Armed Constabulary and riot police had been deployed in the entire affected area under the City Kotwali and Sihani Gate police stations. Cases of rioting, arson, destroying public property, attacking government servants on duty and other counts had been registered. And, although the police were tight-lipped, a large number of alleged rioters had been rounded up.

Many in the mob also condemned the recent lynching of four alleged burglars, belonging to a particular community, in Loni’s Balramnagar area as the police stood by.

According to a police officer, it all started with about a hundred persons marching to the district hospital where the bodies of the two men killed by the cops, Feroze and Rahis, were kept in the mortuary. They beat up two constables on duty there. They had to be admitted to hospital. Some policemen who rushed to the spot to save the duo were also roughed up with the mob chasing them.

After this, the 200-300 strong mob, mainly from Islamnagar, Chaman Colony and neighbouring areas, marched to the New Bus Stand police post where they thrashed the few policemen on duty and set the post and some motorcycles of policemen and others on fire with petrol taken from the vehicles.

The angry crowd then went berserk on GT Road, damaging cars and buses and finally marching to the city control room, where they smashed windows and furniture besides burning two motorcycles parked there. A police jeep was torched. And, even fire tenders from the fire station a stone’s throw away could reach there only after everything was over.

Senior police officers were out of reach as they were huddled together in meetings. All police vehicles had been brought out on the roads and paramilitary personnel had been summoned from nearby districts.
