Indore, Apr 8 (PTI) A group of persons pelted stones

at a police constable in Madhya Pradesh''s Indore district when

he asked them to stay indoors to contain the spread of

coronavirus, an official said on Wednesday.

Five people have been arrested in connection with the

incident that took place in Chandan Nagar area here on Tuesday

evening, he said.

A purported video of the incident also went viral on

social media, in which the policeman was seen running to save

himself from seven to eight people who were throwing stones

and chasing him. One of the miscreants was seen picking up a

stick while chasing the policeman.

Superintendent of Police Mahesh Chandra Jain told PTI

that when the constable asked some people out on streets to go

back home, they started arguing and threw stones at him.

The policeman then ran for his life and alerted his

seniors following which additional force was rushed to the

area, he said.

Five people - identified as Javed (25), Imran Khan

(24), Nasir Khan (58), Sali Khan (50) and Samir Anwar (22) -

were later arrested and booked under IPC sections 147

(rioting), 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by

public servant), 353 (assault of criminal force to deter

public servant from discharge of his duty) and other relevant

provisions.

"We are also recommending to the district

administration to book Javed and Imran Khan under the National

Security Act (NSA)," Jain said.

Search was on for another absconding accused.

This is the third incident in the state of attack on

those at the forefront of the battle against coronavirus.

Earlier, two policemen on lockdown enforcement duty

were injured after a mob attacked them with knives and in

Bhopal''s old city area on Monday night.

On April 1, two women doctors were injured after

stones were pelted at them when they went to Tatpatti Bakhal

area of Indore for contact tracing of COVID-19 patients.

Indore, which is the worst affected with coronavirus

in the state, is under curfew since March 25. PTI HWP MAS
