New Delhi: Police officers in India have used a rattle to try to disperse a mob of protesters outside a railway station in the capital.
The sound of a police officer’s rasping voice on the other end of the line was captured by a passer-by.
Police said on Sunday that they had deployed around 4,000 officers to maintain order.
The police said they had used the rattle at a junction where protesters had gathered, with the officers stopping traffic and clearing a road before dispersing.
The protesters have accused the police of not intervening.
Police have since said they have deployed around 100,000 personnel to quell the protests.
