Mann arrested on sedition charges

Chandigarh, June 14. (PTI): Veteran Akali leader Simranjit Singh Mann was today arrested by Punjab Police from Gurdwara Nankana Sahib in Sangrur on charges of sedition.

Police sources said here that Mann, who is the President of Shiromani Akali Dal (Mann), has been arrested for allegedly raising the demand for Khalistan, a separate homeland for Sikhs.

Separate cases under sedition charges were registered by Punjab police against Mann on June 8 and 13 following a complaint from the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC).

During the 21st anniversary of operation Blue Star on June 6, Mann had allegedly raised slogans for a separate sikh land before Akal Takht. He had also allegedly brandished swords demanding "Khalistan."

After a complaint by SGPC, police had booked Mann on June 8 slapping sedition charges on him.

A similar case was registered against the radical leader on June 13 for "tempting" Sikhs to raise demand of freedom by way of getting separate Sikh homeland.

21 Years on ...... not only the perpertrators are not punished for murdering thousands of Sikhs but they are called heroes (kpgill) and given positions in government (tytler, sajjan kumar)

21 years on ...... Sikhs are still living under persecution and slavery
