HC Deb 06 July 1932 vol 268 c444
41. Mr. McGOVERN

asked the Secretary of State for India if his attention has been drawn to the attempt by Congress volunteers to hoist the national flag on the police station at Behar and the fact that they were beaten with iron-shod shoes until they fainted, and that on their refusal to apologise pepper was rubbed into their eyes and air pumped into their nostrils; and if he will inquire into the circumstances of this incident?

The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Sir Samuel Hoare)

I have no information. If the hon. Member will supply me with further particulars, I will look into it.
