On January 19, a video of policemen taking away blankets and food boxes went viral, following which the Lucknow Police said that they confiscated those items after due process.
The incident happened when women from Lucknow gathered outside the iconic Clock Tower for a 24-hour sit-in protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019, inspired by Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh protests.
Soon after the incident, #KambalChor started trending on Twitter, with netizens making fun of Uttar Pradesh police.
“At the clock tower in Lucknow, during an illegal protest, some people tried to pitch a tent and they were denied permission. Some groups were distributing blankets in the park and many people, who were not an even part of the protest, came to take the blankets. We had to disperse the crowd there. The blankets were seized after due process. Please don’t spread rumours,” the police statement clarified.
