(DSU News Bureau) Over 250 Singhs and Kaurs were arrested near Gurdwara Amb Sahib in Mohali. The Sikhs were headed to Punjab CM Badal’s home in Chandigarh to protest for the release of Sikh political prisoners who’ve served their terms.
However, the Punjab Police rounded the Sikhs up and arrested them. As shown in the pictures and videos the women were harassed by lady constables. Many of the people who were arrested were regular sangat who was visiting Gurdwara Amb Sahib.
The morcha has taken a critical turn after the state government refuses to listen to the demands of the Sikhs or even engage in a conversation with the representatives of Bapu Surat Singh. Bapu Surat Singh has been on hunger strike for 124 days.
Wife of Shaheed Bhai Rashpal Singh Bibi Pritam Kaur and Bapu Surat Singh’s daughter were also arrested.
