Congress MLA Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday said it was shameful that Delhi Police is allowed to torture Punjabis in our domain and territory over the news of Republic Day violence case accused Lakha Sidhana’s cousin Gurdeep Singh allegedly being thrashed by Delhi Police.

“Shameful that Delhi Police is allowed to torture Punjabis in our domain and territory. It violates Punjab Govt’s authority - with whose connivance was it done ?? Lessons should be learnt from Mamata Banerjee who put CBI behind bars when they encroached in W.Bengal’s jurisdiction,” Sidhu tweeted.

Republic Day violence case accused Lakha Sidhana, who is on the run, on Saturday alleged the Delhi Police abducted his cousin Gurdeep Singh from Patiala and beat him badly.

While talking to The Tribune, Sidhana said the intelligence wing of the Delhi Police, which arrested Deep Sidhu, took away his cousin from Patiala who had gone there to give his law exam. He alleged the police repeatedly asked Gurdeep to tell his whereabouts.

Lakha said he completely blamed Capt Amarinder Singh government as how could Delhi Police officials come here and take away a youth without informing the police station concerned.

Gurdeep was brought to the Civil Hospital by Lakha’s supporters, where his condition is stated to be serious. Dr Ravinder Singh at the emergency ward said Gurdeep suffered injuries on the back and legs.
