A policewomen pushed a man with chronic disease to the ground, tore his hair and even stepped on his intimate part.

A witness Shan, who was living in the rainshelter of the park, said that the police destroyed all of their tables and boxes while bags of rice were stabbed and scattered.

The witness was forced to press on a knife’s handle and slandered as possession of an offensive weapon. He further added that the police may target to search for illegal drugs to charge them. He felt helpless since he needed to repurchase food and cleaned up the glass shatters amidst the coronavirus outbreak.

Franco Mella, Shiu Ka Chun Legislative Councillor’s office and district councillor from ADPL condemned such shameful behaviour and criticised the government downplayed the homelessness issue. They urged the police to apologize and explain above case in the coming district council meeting.
