Chandigarh, May 11, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Rajya Sabha Member, Sh. Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa today held an informal meeting with the key leaders of the party regarding the new Special Investigation Team (SIT) constituted by the Punjab Government to probe into the sacrilege and Kotkapura police firing incident. After the meeting, Sh. Dhindsa announced that as per the decision given by the High Court the new SIT has been constituted just to to hogwash and it intends to save the real culprits.
He said that by giving such a decision the High Court has favoured the Badal family. The perception of the Sikh community, however, is opposite to this.
Sh. Dhindsa while strongly rejecting the decision of constituting new SIT termed the decision of Captain Government as irrational.
Sh. Dhindsa said that earlier Capt. Amarinder Singh had announced that the Punjab government would challenge High Court’s decision in the Kotkapura firing incident in the Supreme Court but now it seems like something behind the curtain has happened and because of which the Punjab Chief Minister has taken the complete U-turn and could not stand on firm to his decision and have announced to constitute a new SIT. The new SIT has been given six months to conduct the probe, added Sh. Dhindsa.
He said that however, understanding the seriousness of the situation, Captain’s Government should have challenged the High court’s decision in the Supreme Court.
Sh. Dhindsa said that since 2015, the matter has been investigated on a large scale by various investigating agencies but the present and the then government left no stone unturned to save the culprits.
He said that Capt. Amarinder Singh during the 2017 Assembly elections while swearing by the Gutka Sahib had promised to arrest the culprits but he has betrayed his oath and the Sikh community as well.
