Faridkot/ Chandigarh: The Punjab police (on Oct. 21) announced to have registered an FIR regarding Oct. 14 police firing at village Behbal Kalan. A press release issued by the police (see below) did not disclose that whether police personnel responsible for the firing have been named in the FIR or not.

Notably, two Sikhs – Bhai Krishan Bhagwan Singh (Niamiwala) and Bhai Gurjeet Singh (Sarawan) were killed and several others were injured in the police firing.

The police had registered an FIR (no. 129, dated: 14 Oct. at PS Bakakhana) against Sikh demonstrators, who were sitting on a local/link road (leading to village Behbal Kalan), on October 14. A copy of this FIR is available on the website of Faridkot police. This case was later withdrawn by the police on orders of Punjab Home Minister and Deputy CM Sukhbir Badal.

However even after two days of announcement regarding registration of an FIR against the police personnel, the Faridkot police has not uploaded the concerned FIR (no. 130, dated: October 21, Police station Bajakhana) on official website.
