Fatehgarh Sahib: In written statement issued today, Shiromani Akali Dal Amritsar (Mann) president Simranjit Singh Mann said that the Punjab police today arrested cadre of his party from the districts of Mohali, Ropar, Patiala and Fatehgarh Sahib were arrested including senior leader, Emaan Singh Mann, at the instance of Punjab CM Amarinder Singh.
He strongly condemned the arrests terming it as ‘highhandedness of the Government and Punjab Police’.
S. Simranjit Singh Mann said that the party had given a call for peaceful democratic protest against the conduct of a seminar at the Indian School of Business, Mohali in the memory of KPS Gill.
“Our party strongly opposes the glorification of a person by the Punjab Government and Punjab Police, who was convicted for sexual assault and molestation of woman. KPS Gill was also responsible for extrajudicial killings and disappearances of thousands of innocent young men and excessive human right violations in the state of Punjab and Assam”, he added.
“Glorification of such convicts and tyrants by the government through law enforcement agencies is a crime against humanity and the dignity of women. Such acts of glorification set a wrong precedent in the society and shall encourage the uncouth elements to be more aggressive with women and corrupt officials to commit excesses on the poor sections of the society”, the statement reads further.
“Through this press note we ask the Punjab Chief Minister and the DGP to clarify their stands regarding the Supreme Court Judgement in the Rupan Deol Bajaj Case. On one hand the Chief Minister of Punjab talks on protection of women and on the other hand he is glorifying a person who was infamous for outraging the modesty of a senior woman officer”, said Simranjit Singh Mann.
“We shall take up the unlawful arrest of our cadre with the Hon’ble Punjab Governor of Punjab and ask him to take suitable action against the officials who play as puppets at the hands of political masters and commit atrocities on the political workers of the opposition”, said S. Simranjit Singh Mann.
