They also demanded an end to all sorts of police harassment and asked authorities to not put fake charges on bikers.
Mentioning a recent incident where a biker set his own bike on fire out of frustration, Belal said: “This is a very tragic incident. The frustration caused by the police harassment made the biker do such thing.”

He also said that they have contacted the authority several times before, but no action was taken to resolve the issues.
