The show on NTV dubbed ‘sidebar’ had other panel members discussing claims that the police  is using excessive force during the NASA’s demos.

Things however took a swift turn when the host directed a question to the assistant inspector general asking him whether police was indeed using excessive force on NASA supporters during the protests.

The discussion came as a result of the killing of two people during NASA’s rally at the Jacaranda grounds which did not take place as planned since the anti riot police had sealed off the grounds.
