Kolkata, October 11

Even as Delhi BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga today complained to the National Commission for Minorities, alleging that a Sikh, Balwinder Singh, was attacked and his turban removed by cops during a rally in Howrah, the West Bengal police say the turban “fell off automatically in the ensuing scuffle”. Balwinder belongs to Bathinda.

The WB Government said it had the highest respect for the Sikhs and the BJP was giving a communal hue to the incident. Later in the day, a delegation led by DSGMC chief Manjinder Singh Sirsa submitted a memorandum to the Governor at Raj Bhavan. — TNS
