Chandigarh: Prakash Singh Badal and his son Sukhbir Singh Badal have reportedly said that they will appear before the SIT, probing the 2015 police firings at Behbal Kalan and Kotkapura in Faridkot.
“SAD patron Parkash Singh Badal and party chief Sukhbir Singh Badal will cooperate (with the SIT) so that the truth (behind sacrilege incidents) comes out,” SAD leader and former Finance Minister Parminder Singh Dhindsa told media in Chandigarh.
Notably, earlier the father son duo had refused to appear before the Justice Ranjit Singh Commission saying that the commission was appointed by the Congress government. But now they say that they will appear before the SIT appointed by the same government.
The decision on appearance of the two Badals before the SIT was taken Sunday by the party’s core committee.
Dhindsa said : “We expect that the SIT will conduct a fair probe into the matter”.
The Special Investigation Team (SIT) had issued summonses to the two Badals and Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar on Sunday.
While Parkash Singh Badal has been asked to appear before the SIT of Punjab Police on November 16; Sukhbir Badal has been summoned on November 19. Akshay Kumar has been asked to appear before the SIT on November 21. The three have to report to SIT at the Amritsar the circuit house.
