The police had opened unprovoked firing on Sikhs, mostly youth, who were staging a peaceful sit-in demonstration on the road side near a Gurdwara Sahib in Gurdaspur city. They were demanding arrest of Soni and other Shiv Sena leaders who were named in FIR registered on March 28 for beating up Sikh youth and removing their turbans. Instead of arresting Soni and other accused the police opened fire. In the firing, a young engineering student — Jaspal Singh — was killed and another Ranjit Singh was seriously injured.
