Amid on-going agitation in Madhya Pradesh over killing of six farmers in police firing, an 80-year old woman claimed she along with her 100-year old husband were beaten up by police last week. According to a report by NDTV, the woman, Kamalabhai Mewade, who had a swollen face and a fractured arm, said the police accused her of being in league with the protesters from a farmers’ rally at Phanda Kalan village near Sehore.
"They said ‘Buddhi (old woman), you ordered that trucks be set on fire, you set the place ablaze,” the woman was quoted by NDTV as saying. “I told them that I cannot move from my cot. I have had a rod inserted in my leg and I have been sitting here for the last one-and-a-half years. Still, they beat me up,” she added. She also said that her son and four grandsons were arrested illegally by the police.
