Youth’s turban ‘insulted’, villagers seek action

Jalandhar, February 4

Days after pictures of Ranjit Singh (22), a resident of Kajampur village in Nawanshahr, wincing under a cop's boot went viral on the social media, 20 villages on Wednesday passed a unanimous resolution condemning the alleged insult of his turban, beard and hair by the Delhi Police.

The village panchayat has written to the Jathedar, Akal Takht, and sought intervention of the SGPC as well as the DSGMC demanding strict action against those responsible for the desecration of Ranjit Singh's articles of faith.

Ranjit Singh was arrested by the Delhi Police on the charge of attacking police personnel on January 29. Meanwhile, the SGPC has also filed a complaint on the issue with the Nawanshahr SSP, urging it "to register a criminal case against rioters, police officials and other persons involved so that justice be delivered to all aggrieved persons". — TNS
