According to reports [a]s Ram Singh approached the courts complex in police custody his face was covered with a cloth by police officials and media persons had to struggle hard with police to uncover his face and click a few shots. Police and court administration was shocked to see Ram Singh’s supporters raising anti police and anti Bikram Singh slogans quite inside the courts complex. Ram Singh was presented before the ACJM and is sent on judicial remand.

Talking to media personnel Ram Singh informed that he is not worried about the fabricated cases which Bikram Majithia group is perpetrating upon him but he is heartbroken from this act committed by SHO under Bikram’s pressure. Ram Singh further said that he had never expected Bikram and police to do such an act with a Sikh.

“Bikram Singh’s forefathers had got honors for General O’Dwyre from Akal Takhat for the heinous act he had committed at Jallianwala Bagh. He said this family when in power can use each and evert Sikh institution for their advantages and they don’t bother about the honor of Sikhs which is clear from today’s event. Sh.
