Patna, June 21 (BPNS) 

A day after the raid on the premises of coaching centre operator Guru M. Rahman, he released a video on Tuesday seeking to clarify that he was never involved in provoking the youths for violence.

“During early stage of agitation, I was pointed out the democratic rights of students and every countryman to protest against the government policies like Agnipath in a peaceful manner. You sStudents) can stop trains but not uproot the railway track or damage railway properties. I never say in my video statement to go for violence,” Rahman, who is known as ‘Daroga (policeman) Guru’ in Patna, said in his video statement.

“As far as violence at Danapur railway station on June 18 was concerned, I said again and again that there were anti-social elements who had done the violence. There were hardly any students present there. I always told students to avoid getting involved in any kind of violence. If one single FIR is registered against their names, their careers would be finished.

“The allegation levelled on me is completely baseless,” he said.

On Monday Patna police raided the four coaching institutes of Rahman, apart from his house at Naya Tola but failed to arrest him.

Besides him, Bihar Police registered FIRs against the operators of 7 coaching institutes in Patna and other districts. On Monday, Rohtas police arrested a coaching institute owner from Katakat block on the charge of provoking the students for arson.

“The investigation is currently underway against the operators of coaching institutes related to violence during Agnipath agitation. We are taking action against them,” Bihar DGP S.K. Singhal said.
