Indore District Magistrate seeks forgiveness:


Indore District Magistrate Manish Singh has apologised to God for the local administration’s action of dumping homeless people outside the city in the cold weather, which had led to a massive public outrage.

Various people had termed the action as a “blot on humanity”.

What had happened?

The incident came to light after villagers along the highway, where the elderly were dropped off, objected to it and began making videos of it. Subsequently, the elderly people were put back in the vehicle and taken away. The vehicle belonged to the encroachment removal department.
