AAP supporters beaten up by police while protesting against pesticides scam

Chandigarh: Nearly a dozen supporters of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) were injured on Sunday, as they were cane-charged and teargassed by Chandigarh Police while they were protesting against the pesticides scam here.

Police also used water cannons to disperse the AAP workers when they tried to proceed towards the official residence of Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal here. Earlier, the AAP protestors were stopped near Sector 57, close to Chandigarh’s boundary with the Mohali town in Punjab.

The protesters were demanding a time-bound judicial probe into the pesticides scam in Punjab due to which cotton growers in the state suffered losses running into hundreds of crores of rupees, AAP youth wing president Harjot Singh Bains said.
