The letter has stated: "While we understand the need for the stricter imposition of curfew and enforcement of pertinent restrictions, the ruthless dismantling and thoughtless destruction of the markers of our physical protest, especially the very structures whose placement is in question in a matter that is sub-judice in the SC, reeks of strong vendetta and ill feelings towards our innocent protesters, locals and sympathisers. It further heightens distrust and the perception of being uncared for by the state institutions."
