In a development indicating that the Karauli riot happened in connivance with Rajasthan Police, a video of the incident that surfaced today suggests that the police let rioters escape. The cops in the video can be heard telling the mob to run away.

“Run, run, go away. It’s done,” Rajasthan Police personnel say in the video as rioters went berserk on the streets of Karauli.

Following the exposé, BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla lashed out at the Indian National Congress (INC) saying that the party’s government in Rajasthan was hand-in-glove with the rioters.

“This exposé by is the most clinching piece of evidence Congress is hand in glove with the rioters. Police were not just mute spectators, they were also the abetters of these riots,” he said.

politician Rashid Alvi hit back at the BJP, alleging the state opposition party’s involvement in the communal riot in the state. “Because the election is coming in Rajasthan, it is BJP that has created this situation,” he said.

Meanwhile, the curfew in Rajasthan’s Karauli has been extended till 7 April 7.
