Police on Thursday identified the man who gave shelter to those who shot at the cavalcade of Sikh preacher Ranjit Singh Dhadrianwale on Burwal road here.
One of the four persons arrested after the attack, Ludhiana resident Manjit Singh not only provided shelter to nearly two dozen attackers before and after the crime, but also helped them in setting up a fake ‘chhabeel’ where Dhadrianwale was attacked, said police.
The police on Wednesday had also rounded up Balkar Singh of Baba Bakala in Amritsar. Sources said he was driving one of the vehicles used by the attackers.
Dhadrianwale said that he was fully aware of the persons who planned and executed the attack on him but he would wait for the investigations to be over and also for the police to name the attackers themselves. I am against the policy of killing brothers,” he added.“Though the probe is heading in the right direction so far, such attacks and their masterminds want to disturb the peace of the state,” he said.
“Further, the government should come out with the names of the persons who orchestrated the attack as merely arresting some accused will not serve the purpose”, he said.
“I don’t want any security cover, but the government should give more arms licenses for my followers who man the inner and outer cordon of my security”, Dhadrianwale said after the meeting.
In this video Baba Dhadrianwale is clearly indicating the following : 1) some assailants were from Chownk Mehta . 2) He acknowledges Gurbachan Singh as Jathedar and wants him to expel those sikhs from sikh community who arranged a fake Chabeel . 3) For now, he is satisfied with the way investigation is proceeding.
