Dad asked, why did you shoot?
He says, “I want to ask the police-administration if they had any choice but to open fire. Tear gas is used, water is released to stop the stampede. But my son’s program There was a car with water at the time. “He was a policeman, not at the time of the protest. The administration will return my son.”

Due to the situation after the operation and the death of her son, mother Soni Parveen was unable to speak. The eldest son made him sit in the chair. Then he expressed his pain. She says, “My son left, he used to support the whole house, who will give us now, he is gone. We want justice from the government. He who shot the bullet must also be punished. Lots of dreams about the son. ” Well, now it’s over, and then what about the dream.
While Sahil’s older brother, Mohd. Saqib said, “Just give us back our brother. We want justice in any situation. Only he used to win between the three brothers. Hemant Soren gives us justice. The air shot is made in the sky, not in the chest. “.
