In a written complaint lodged before the city police, Phagwara, Dalit leaders Jassi Talhan, Surinder Dhandha, Yash Barna, Satish Bunty and Balwinder Bobby alleged that objectionable words were mentioned in the WhatsApp chat about the Dalit community.

The Dalit leaders demanded registration of a case under the SC/ST Act against the message senders and admin of the group for hurting religious sentiments. SP Rupinder Kaur Bhatti said the police had received a written complaint. Further investigations were on into the case.
