Lakha Sidhana, wanted in connection with the violence in Delhi on Republic Day, alleged that his cousin was beaten up by the police. Congress MLA Navjot Singh Sidhu has received a statement on allegations of beating Lakha Sidhana’s cousin Gurdeep Singh by the Delhi Police in connection with the violence in Delhi on Republic Day. Sidhu said that it is shameful that the police were allowed to torture Punjabis.
Sidhana’s name is included in the FIR of the Delhi Police, which was registered in connection with the violence in the national capital on Republic Day. Shiromani Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Badal also condemned the alleged beating of Gurdeep by the police and blamed Chief Minister Amarinder Singh for it. Meanwhile, the Delhi Police has denied these allegations.
Sidhana had accused and alleged that her cousin was picked up by the Delhi Police from Patiala and beaten up. Sidhana claimed that the Delhi Police had asked her cousin to reveal her.
Sidhu said in a tweet on Sunday, “It is shameful that the Delhi Police has been allowed to torture Punjabis in our area.” This is a violation of the authority of the Punjab government, with whose connivance it was done? Lessons should be learned from Mamata Banerjee (Chief Minister of West Bengal), who imprisoned CBI officials for violating Bengal’s jurisdiction.
Lakkha Sidhana had taken out a march of farmers on Friday, protesting against three agricultural laws for the Delhi border from Gurdwara Mastuna Sahib in the Sangrur district of Punjab. Addressing a gathering at the gurudwara even before the protest, Sidhana said that he was not afraid of being arrested. The farmers’ movement is a fight for survival for Punjab. He said that the farmers are united and thousands of youth are marching towards Delhi again. It is important that how we win the struggle.
