(DSU News Bureau) 2 Singhs were arrested by police during a massive protest outside Royal Palace Banquet Hotel in Richmond Hill, NY. The Singhs were released later in the day with minor charges against them.
The Sikhs were out in large numbers to protest against Akali Dal Badal.
A day prior, protests caused the Akali Dal conference in Toronto to end without even being started. Police wasn’t dispatched in large numbers in the begining but after the protesters increased in size, the numbers were increased.
Sikh lawyers have decided to fight the cases of the 2 arrested Singhs and to get their files cleared.
The police sealed off the area around the Banquet Hall and separated the two sides. The protest remained peaceful throughout the meeting and no reports of violence was received.
