Recommended Posts

TarnTaran, Jodhpur – The Punjab Police has never been a force for the people. It neither serves nor protects, unless you are part of the Indian establishment, government, or have been provided special sanction by the government. Today was no different.

Today, on Tuesday, 28th Oct, the Punjab Police shot and opened gunfires at Sikhs protesting in village Jodhpur in TarnTaran against an anti-panthic program organized by supporters of dead Ashutosh Noormehlia of the Divya Jyoti Jagran Sansthan.

Leaders of the Sikh organisations alleged that two policemen attached with the dera followers opened fire, injuring several Sikh youths. Among those injured are Kanshi Ram, Jasmeet Singh, Jaswinder Kaur and Subheg Singh, all dera followers, and constable Tajinder Singh. A grievously injured Sikh youth was admitted to a hospital in Amritsar.

However, The dera followers accused the police of inaction. They alleged that the Sikh organisations had threatened them against holding the satsang, which was why the police had been deployed in the village.

According to sources, Bhai Amrik Singh Ajnala has got a gunshot at his leg and is in serious condition. 6 others have also been reported as injured during firing.

The situation in the village has been described as tense.

The Akal Takht jathedar, Giani Gurbachan Singh, has asked the state government to initiate action against the dera supporters for their “anti-Sikh activities”. He has sought action against the police constables who reportedly opened fire at Sikh youths during the clash.
