Hoshiarpur/Punjab (September 22, 2012): Dal Khalsa has asked state home minister Sukhbir Singh Badal to give statement on the arrest of leaders of SAD (Panch Pardani) Daljit singh and Kulbir Singh Barapind under various sections of IPC including the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.
In a statement party head H S Dhami, general secretary Dr Manjinder Singh, spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh and KAC chairman Mohkam Singh said the sudden detention of present and former head of Sikh political outfit without any specific reason and provocation has raised many eyebrows.
The police leadership has framed them under serious offences including waging war against the state but a section of people were unconvinced as they see design behind the police theory. “We would like to hear the real reasons behind the arrest from the political leadership. Let junior Badal to explain the situation as to what prompted the state security force to arrest them”, said they.
They were of the view that an impartial probe was required to ascertain the facts as police has never acted without prejudice. They wondered whether the government was trying to provoke the situation.
Despite their militant past, the present activities of both were neither illegal nor danger to peace and harmony, they claimed.
They took a dig at SGPC president and general secretary Avtar Singh Makkar and Sukhdev Singh Bhaur for maintaining stoic silence. “Kulbir Singh Barapind is an elected member of the SGPC. It is responsibility of SGPC leadership to intervene and ensure that there was no foul-play against their member.
