Hundreds of SAD workers, led by former MLA and district president Virsa Singh Valtoha, and SGPC member Alwinderpal Singh Pakhoke, on Wednesday gheraoed the residence of Khadoor Sahib MLA Ramanjit Singh Sikki at Reshiana village over the alleged role of the MLA and his PA in the distribution of spurious liquor in the area. The liquor had claimed over 100 lives in the area. The workers started their march from nearby Sheikhchak village and gheraoed the residence of Sikki for hours in the scorching heat and demanded registration of a case against the MLA and his PA.

Addressing the party workers, Virsa Singh Valtoha and Alwinderpal Singh Pakhoke alleged it was clear from the statements of the victims’ families that the MLA and his PA, Jarmanjit Singh, were actively involved in the distribution of spurious liquor in villages of the area. The leaders further alleged that the trade was freely carried out even during the lockdown period. The leaders demanded a probe by a sitting judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court. They also demanded a compensation of Rs 25 lakh each for the victims’ families and registration of a criminal case against the MLA and his PA. The protesters burnt the effigy of Capt Amarinder Singh and Sikki.
