At that moment a police patrol car arrived there and they rebuked me with slang language for not wearing mask. I said them that I am a doctor and just ventured out to find my keys and because of the urgency I missed to wear the mask. I even accepted that I made a mistake. But they forcefully compelled me to  kneel down in public place and then charged batons on us".
