Attack on AAP MLA Manuke: party demands immediate arrest of culprits

Chandigarh, December 7

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Punjab, has condemned the murderous attack on its Jagraon MLA and deputy leader of opposition (Dy LoP), Sarabjit Kaur Manuke, late Friday evening. Condemning the dastardly attack on Bibi Sarabjit Kaur Manuke, leader of opposition (LoP), Harpal Singh Cheema, said that the attackers be arrested sooner than later. He also demanded a time-bound judicial probe into the incident.

Cheema questioned the laidback attitude of the police dispensation, saying the culprits had not been arrested by far even as the victim legislator had provided them (the police) with the screen shots of the car allegedly by the accused. Cheema warned the government that if the culprits were not arrested within 24 hours, the AAP would be compelled to take a tougher stand in the matter.

The LoP further said the law and order situation in the state had virtually collapsed and that the criminals and anti-social elements were roaming free without any fear psychosis. Drug traffickers and mafia lords in the state were at the helms making  lives of the common people a virtual hell while the Captain government remained a mute spectator.
