Taking a stern view of a police inspector's atrocities on vegetable sellers in Prayagraj, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday evening ordered action against the erring cop and compensation for the losses suffered by the sellers.

According to reports, a bi-weekly vegetable market in Prayagraj was held on Thursday even though it was scheduled to be held on Wednesday and Friday.

Inspector Sumit Anand, who reached the spot, asked the farmers to leave. When the farmers did not comply, he crushed their vegetables with his jeep.

A video of the incident went viral on Friday and the Chief minister directed officials to apologize to the farmers and compensate them for their losses.

SSP Prayagraj, Satyarth Aniruddh, told reporters that the inspector responsible for the incident had been suspended and the losses would be assessed and recovered from his salary. He said that compensation would be given to 11 farmers who had been identified so far.

He said that a circle officer had visited the market on Friday and had complied with the orders of the Chief Minister.

The farmers were asked to maintain social distancing while setting up shops.
