The truth behind the Effingham Secondary School saga has been brought to the light. It was not a matter of Indian cops mistreating students and pointing guns at them. Rather it was a case where students were being apprehended by the police for their holistic behavior.
Apparently, some students from Effingham Secondary School, Durban took part in a two day protest to address an issue of racism that occurred at the school. The whole protest went South after the protesting students had an altercation with students from another school. This is where we see two girls being dragged on the floor by police personnel. According to sources, these two girls locked horns and did not stop even the police arrived.
Things got worse when parents came to attack other learners who were fighting with their kids.
The above seems like a justification of what those policemen did to the learners but it is not. In my opinion, the way the policemen manhandled the female learners was wrong and they could have handled it in a better way.
