Surat, Mar 1 (PTI) A Muslim organisation has alleged

that in-charge Surat Commissioner of Police, D N Patel, called

their representatives "Pakistanis and Bangladeshis" when they

recently went to meet him over an ongoing anti-CAA protest in

the city.

When contacted, Patel refused to comment on the

allegation saying he would give his reply to the government.

In a letter addressed and e-mailed on February 28 to

Gujarat Governor Acharya Devvrat and state Home Department,

the state chapter of Jamiat-E-Ulema-E-Hind alleged that Patel

misbehaved with their representatives when they went to meet

him over the anti-CAA protest going on at Shirin Bagh in

Surat''s Rander area.

Surat Commissioner of Police (CP), R B Brahmbhatt, is

currently on leave. In his absence, Patel, a senior IPS

officer, who is the Additional CP, has been holding charge of

the CP.

Jamiat claimed that on the lines of Shaheen Bagh in

Delhi, women have been staging a sit-in against the

Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and the National Register of

Citizens (NRC) since last 22 days in a peaceful manner.

In the letter, the organisation alleged its delegation

went to meet Patel to request him not to take any coercive

action against the agitating women at Shirin Bagh.

"When we went to request him to let this peaceful

protest continue, he insulted us and labelled the delegation

as Pakistanis and Bangladeshis. We urge you to ensure that

officials do not discriminate among the citizens and behave

properly with people," the letter said.

Patel said he would give his reply directly to the

government over the allegations.

"I do not want to comment on what they have to say.

When time comes, I will furnish my reply to the government if

I am asked to do so," said Patel. PTI COR PJT PD
