New Delhi: Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday alleged that Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) patron and former Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal was squarely responsible for the Behbal Kalan police firing in the wake of the 2015 Bargari beadbi incident. Amarinder said that he was sure that the fresh Commission of Inquiry probing the matter would expose the involvement of the former chief minister.
“How can a SP order firing? He was clearly instructed to do so”, Captain Amarinder said, adding that he had all along been maintaining that Badal was behind the unwarranted police firing, which led to the death of two persons.
He was addressing a select gathering at a felicitation function organized by Shiromani Akali Dal (Delhi) and attended by a host of luminaries here.
