Sikh Masses to Stage Protest in Kotkapura Against Lack of Government Action in 2015 Killings

Interacting with media on October 9, the Sarbat Khalsa appointed Takht Jathedars Bhai Dhian Singh Mand (interim) and Bhai Baljit Singh Daduwal informed that a protest will be staged at Battian Wala cross road on October 14 against Punjab government’s failure in bringing the culprits of Behbal Klan tragedy to justice. The protest time has been fixed from 12 to 3 PM in the afternoon.

Interim Akal Takht Jathedar Bhai Dhian Singh Mans has appealed all the leaders & activists of Sikh outfits, preachers, Raagis, Dhadis and common Sikhs to take part in this protest.

On October 14, 2015 two Sikh youths namely Bhai Krishan Bhagwan Singh and Bhai Gurjit Singh were shot dead by the Police in an unprovoked firing opened on the peacefully protesting Sikhs. Several others were also injured in the firing while peacefully staging protest against the inability of Police to trace missing scripture of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji which had gone missing from Burj Jawahar Singh Wala in June-2015.

Initially, the earlier Akali-BJP led Punjab government had appointed an investigation commission headed by Justice Zora Singh but in April this year his report was annulled by the Congress government and the investigation was handed over to Justice Ranjit Singh.
