Dhule riots: Video shows policemen looting shops, destroying private property

Dhule: In what may validate complaints of police atrocity during the Dhule riots, CNN-IBN has accessed a video that shows policemen going on a rampage, looting shops and pounding vehicles parked on roadsides during and after the clashes.

The video shows men in uniform destroying private property. Some policemen can be seen smashing water drums and pounding two-wheelers parked along the street where the riot broke out on January 6.

Earlier, CNN-IBN had highlighted complaints of police atrocity. The Maharashtra Police has assured action against the erring officials and has asked people to come forward and submit the clips.

Six people were killed and several others injured during the violence that broke out following a tiff over payment of a hotel bill.
