The Gujarat Criminal Investigation Department has accused local policemen of fudging facts in the case related to the July 11 flogging of Dalits in Una.
Its chargesheet, filed Wednesday against 34 accused, alleged that police twisted the skinning of a dead cow by Dalits into a case of 'beef being found'.
The CID also arrested four policemen, including former police inspector of the Una police station, for negligence, wrong reporting and taking a case that wasn't in their jurisdiction.
According to the chargesheet, the CID found that when the four Dalit youths from Mota Samadhiyala village were forcibly taken into custody by the accused, a group of villagers had come to their rescue but had to return after the accused threatened them. These villagers called the police control rooms in Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad.
