Faridkot, May 16, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
A Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Punjab Police has arrested six persons accused in the case of sacrilege of Sri Guru Granth Sahib in 2015 in Bargari.
The SIT, now working under its new head, IG Border Range SPS Parmar, has arrested Sukhjinder Singh alias Sunny, Nishan Singh, Ranjeet Singh Bhola and Pardeep Kumar, all resident of Kotkapura, Shakti Singh resident of Daggu Romana and Baljit Singh of village Sikhanwala. All have been arrested in a case registered at Bajakhana Police Station.
All those arrested are said to be Dera Premis having affiliation with Dera Sirsa.
It may be recalled that Sukhjinder Singh Sunny, Shakti Singh, Ranjit Singh Bhola and Baljit Singh were earlier arrested in a case pertaining to pasting of highly objectionable posters near the Gurdwara Sahib at Bargari.
It is the first action of the SIT after the case files were handed over by the CBI to the SIT and also the first action after its head was changed on the orders of the High Court.
The government, acting on the HC orders, had replaced IG Ranbir Singh Khatra as head of the SIT even as he was retained as member of the team. IG Border Range SPS Parmar was brought in as the head of the SIT. The third member in the team is IG Rajinder Singh Sohal. Parmar took over as head of the SIT in March.
The arrested accused are set to be produced before a court in Faridkot on Monday, May 17, 2021.
Though not officially as yet, but it has been claimed that that both cases related to Bargari have now been solved with the arrest of the six accused.
