Chandigarh, July 13, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)
Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal today strongly opposed the filing of a closure report pertaining to three incidents of sacrilege in Bargari by the CBI in a Mohali court and demanded that the report be withdrawn and investigation into the sacrilege cases be taken to their logical conclusion.
Terming the development as unfortunate, the SAD president said the sacrilege of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji at Bargari had shocked the entire Sikh nation. “This is not an ordinary crime but one which has emotional ramifications.
The SAD is committed to ensure the culprits responsible for this heinous crime are exposed and brought to book as it concerns the community at large. Keeping this in mind we demand the CBI withdraw the closure report immediately”.
The SAD president said the party was not only in favour of getting the closure report withdrawn but also stood for redoubling of efforts by the CBI to take the case to the logical conclusion.
He said the SAD was also in favour of laying down a time frame for the CBI so that the re-investigation of the case was completed speedily. “We will approach the centre and even the union home minister in this context if needed”, he added.
