Amritsar, August 18
Tension prevailed on the Majitha road here on Tuesday when activists of various Sikh organisations gathered at the spot where hoardings greeting tainted Congress leader Jagdish Tytler on his birthday were put up by Congress leader Karamjit Singh Gill. The Sikh activists held peaceful protest outside the Sadar police station and demanded registration of FIR against Karamjit Gill.
Gill had allegedly challenged on social media that the hoardings were removed in his absence and asked the organisation to reach the spot on Tuesday.
Accepting the challenge, Sikh activists reached the spot on the Majitha road and started raising slogans. Heavy police force also reached the spot and tried to pacify the agitators. The Sikh activists waited for Gill till 2 pm, but he did not turn up following which they moved to the Sadar police station and demanded registration of FIR against Gill for putting up hoardings and thereby hurting sentiments of the Sikh community.
Paramjit Singh Akali, a Sikh activist, said that the man who had put up the hoardings had challenged on social media and asked to reach at the spot. He said activists of various Sikh organisations had gathered the point. He said they would not allow the hoardings of alleged accused of anti-Sikh riots in 1984.
Parveen Kumar, SHO, Sadar police station, said that preventive action under Sections 107 and 151 of the CrPC was initiated against Karamjit Gill.
