Dismiss cops resp for brutal attack on innocent Sikhs in Delhi – Sukhbir Badal

- Posted on 17 June 2019

Chandigrah, June 17 – Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal today urged Home minister Amit Shah to take strict action against police personnel responsible for brutal attack on innocent Sikhs by dismissing them from service and registering an attempt to murder case against them.

In a statement here, the SAD President said there was no place in democracy for inhuman conduct against any community. “The Delhi police personnel behaved like animals yesterday by brutalizing an old Sikh man and his son in front of the Mukherjee Nagar police station. The old man was beaten up and dragged on the streets despite pleas of his son to defuse the situation. Later the son was also attacked and beaten up mercilessly”.

Urging the home minister to award exemplary punishment to the cops involved in this dastardly act, the SAD president said this was necessary to send the right message to society that atrocities by men in uniform would not be tolerated under any circumstances. Besides urging for immediate dismissal for all the police personnel involved in the incident, Mr Badal also urged the Home minister to register an attempt to murder case against the cops.

The SAD president commended the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) for the taking up the case forcefully. “I have entrusted DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa to give all possible help to the innocent Sikhs besides filing a complaint against the police personnel responsible for this heinous act with the relevant authorities”, Mr Badal added.
