A local court in Surendrangar district Sunday remanded three policemen in three-day police custody in connection with the last year's Thangadh police firing incident in which three dalits were killed.
The state CID, probing the firing incident, Saturday arrested police Sub-Inspector K P Jadeja and constables Nathubha Jhala and Yogesh Gadhvi, who were on the run after three dalits were allegedly killed in a police firing in Thangadh during a clash in September last.
"A local court in Muli town in Surendranagar district Sunday remanded the trio in three-day police remand in this connection," said CID (Crime) DySP S P Trivedi.
A Dalit community boy was killed on the spot and three others seriously injured when police opened fire to disperse the violent mob that clashed with members of other community at Thangadh in Surendranagar district on September 22, 2012, after holding of a fair.
Two of the three boys later succumbed to gunshot injuries. The CID was given the charge of investigations following a huge uproar over the incident.
