But there are some aspects of the case that were not touched by the ADGP. As per information collected by the Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) Angs of Guru Granth Sahib that were found from Bargari village were kept on a “Peera” during Kotkapura protests. These Angs were reportedly shifted to some place late evening of October 12 when Bhai Ranjit Singh Dhadrian and other Sikh pracharaks were first arrested by the police.
Sikh pracharaks, during their press conference on Oct. 13 (after they were released by the police) had said that the police were pressing them to hand over the Angs of Guru Granth Sahib taking a plea that it was required for progress in the case investigation.
SSN sources said that these Angs were later handed over to the police and the process was even video-graphed.
But ADGP Sahota, during his press conference today, did not make mention of this fact not did he clarify that whether the Angs said to be recovered from arrested persons were same Angs that were kept at Kotkapura Chowk during protest?
It is notable that according to a news reported by Daily Ajit on October 18, 2015 (Faridkot Edition at page number 9) the police had arrested Rupinder Singh’s father Darshan Singh, his brother Jaswinder Singh and his friends Gurlal Singh and Amandeep Singh. According to Daily Ajit they were thrashed by the police and were kept at Mehna police station (Moga). The news report also says that suspecting public protest the police admitted Rupinder Singh to Medical Collage Faridkot at around 8 am on Oct. 17.
As per information Rupinder was later shifted to Apollo Hospital, Ludhiana. As per ADGP Sahota he was arrested today.
