On October 21, Wednesday Punjab police seem to have cracked one amongst the seven cases of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh holy book. Two brothers have been arrested in this case who had reportedly committed this offence with someone’s help in Australia. Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), IPS Sahota along with a Special Investigation Team were busy solving the sacrilege incident that happened in Bargari village’s Gurudwara in Faridkot. After their investigation, it was concluded that the accused behind the sacrilege actually became soft targets of some anti-national forces because of their greed and ambition of being rich.
Jaswinder Singh, who hails from Panjgrain village in Faridkot, was arrested for his connection with the very first incident of the holy book’s sacrilege that happened in Bargari village where a violent clash had erupted between the Sikh protesters and the police which led to the death of two persons. The police took these brothers into custody after they intercepted their mobile calls that happened between 14 to 16 October. It is also being said that the brothers had a connection with someone in Australia.
According to the ADGP more details about the investigations like foreign links etc. will be studied in the coming days. Apart from this, nearly five men and a woman have been arrested till now regarding the sacrilege that happened in Ludhiana, Sangrur, Faridkot, Tarn Taran while in Bhathinda and Ferozpur, the police expect a major breakthrough.
