Billionaire businessman Rajiv Ruparelia has spoken out about this morning incident in which there was an attack against him by VVIP Police officers in a Civilian Drone Mini-Van.
Rajiv Ruparelia who is nursing severe wounds says the attacks on him by counter terrorism police officers happened near his home in Kololo, a Kampala suburb during a morning walk.
He narrated that this morning while walking with his dogs he saw a vehicle racing up on a terrific speed and stopped them to inquire why they were driving on a high speed on such a residential road.
“I stopped to communicate with them that it was not safe for anybody to ride that fast on a residential road.
“This happened as i was walking my Dog” Rajiv said.
“I requested in a simple way but an officer angrily said to me that this is not India, this is Uganda. The police officer was not in identified Police vehicle, it was a private car. Based on that I had no idea that this was police”.
“He went on and asked me why i should ask him to slow down, i did not know there were several other office officers in the car, and they got out and started beating me”.
“In the process of beating me, i was no longer able to hold my dogs. I released them and they started running”
“Immediately the dogs saw that i was being beaten by Police Officers they retaliated to protect me as they tried to stop them while the Officers were gun-butting me. This was a racial attack”.
“My dog watcher came to help me and in the process the policemen pounced on him and clobbered him badly and he is now in hospital. As they were leaving they knocked my House help him with the Police Drone Minivan but he survived but they nearly killed him.
