As per the statement given by the injured person, there were many persons making queue in the ATM Counter, all trying to get first. Meanwhile, some Policemen came, forcibly tried to get cash first. Thus, there was confusion and too much rush among all. He got the cash and came out. Then, one of the Policemen hit him in his stomach with his Rifle. Then punch and knock him. His colleagues joined him. He became semi-unconscious and could no more notice all the persons, whether two or more who hit him.
