In retaliation, police fired tear gas shells towards the club premises and even entered and charged with batons. In this situation, the members inside the club felt extremely insecure.
Three members of the club's management committee, including an official, were injured while trying to prevent them from spreading the clash inside the club building reads a press release.
According to club’s rules, it is forbidden to chant slogans in the club premises, throwing bricks and batons from inside or outside, and obviously breaking the gate -- all of which happened on the day. This was deemed unacceptable at the meeting.
The police entering the club premises breaching the gate, throwing tear gas shells, baton-charging, were found to be unfortunate -- members expect the police to behave responsibly in any situation.
A committee was formed by the club to investigate the whole incident, and their report has already been submitted. According to their report, the next steps will be taken so that such incidents do not happen again.
The club authorities aim to maintain a delicate balance: they do not want to ban or regulate political activities here, but expect responsible behavior from all parties involved.
