We were treated like terrorists: Protesting farmers.

After police used pellet guns on protesters in Maharashtra’s Thane, agitators alleged they were treated “not as farmers, but terrorists”.

“The government won’t be able to resolve issues with this attitude,” said 33-year-old Jagdish Mhatre, who received six pellet injuries.

17-year-old Bhupesh Mhatre suffered 17 injuries. He says the protest was peaceful till the police approached and “even used force on the women”.
