Several persons were picked up by the police around 15:45 hours at the Stabroek market area. Those apprehended were taken to the Brickdam police station for questioning.
The men, who were visibly angry, shouted on the police for holding them without asking them any question.
One of the men within the group, who is a businessman, told iNews that he was transacting his daily business and suddenly the police came, picked him up and threw him in the canter.
Another man said he had just come out of a taxi when the police pulled him into the canter truck. Eyewitnesses voiced concerns about the way in which the police operate. [Nickhail Jaundoo]
