Indore, Apr 8 (PTI) The stringent National Security

Act (NSA) was invoked on Wednesday against four men who,

among others, allegedly pelted stones at a police personnel

who was on lockdown enforcement duty in the city, officials

said.

District Magistrate Manish Singh slapped the NSA on

Javeed Khan (25), Saleem Khan (50), Imran Khan (24) and Sameer

Anwar (22) for allegdly pelting stones at a police constable

on Tuesday night.

Two of the accused will be imprisoned in Jabalpur

while other two in Satna jail, the DM''s order said.

Another arrested accused was identified as Nasir Khan

(58).

Superintendent of Police (West) Maheshchandra Jain

said the police constable asked the accused not to loiter

outside when he spotted them on the streets in Chandan Nagar

area of the city.

They started an altercation and hurled stones at the

policeman who escaped to a safer place, the SP said.

Six persons were arrested over the incident and four

of them were booked under the NSA, he said.

All of them were booked under IPC sections 147

(rioting) and 188 (disobeying order promulgated by government

officer) too.

A purported video of the incident showed seven-eight

rioters charging and hurling stones at the constable who is

running for cover. One of the rioters is seen getting hold

of a piece of wood and chasing him.

Earlier, on April 1, two women doctors had sustained

injuries in stone-pelting in Tatapatti Bakhal area of the

city. They were part of a five-member Health Department team

conducting screening for coronavirus patients.

The authorities had invoked the NSA against four

accused in that case too.

Indore has reported 173 coronavirus cases so far,

including 16 cases of death due to COVID-19. PTIHWP LAL MAS
