Returnees stage protest, allege police assault
RETURNEES quarantined at Belvedere Teachers’ College were on Sunday allegedly beaten by police following a demonstration over test kit shortages which they wanted the government to address them on.
“More than 50 people were beaten. There is a hostel where all the men were beaten because they were making a lot of noise. We were made to lie down on our stomachs and then they started beating us. I got hurt on the arm and buttocks.”
