Ludhiana, November 25

Fuming over the recovery of bovine remains from Jeevan Nagar on Wednesday, members and leaders of Hindu outfits, gaushala committees and BJP held a protest outside the offices of the Deputy Commissioner and Police Commissioner today.

The protesters blocked the road outside the CP office for over an hour which caused huge inconvenience to the commuters. They lifted dharna only after CP Gurpreet Singh Bhullar came out of his office and received a memorandum.

Initially, Hindu outfit leaders Amit Arora and Rajiv Tandon, BJP spokesperson Amit Sarin, Gursimran Singh Mand, chairman, International Anti-Khalistani Terrorists Foundation Gursimran Singh Mand and members of gaushala committees gheraoed the DC office and sat on a dharna there for over half an hour. They were insisting that DC Varinder Sharma should come out of his office and receive a memorandum. They raised slogans against the DC for not paying heed to the cow slaughtering issue which hurt the sentiments of the Hindu community.

After the DC received the memorandum, they marched towards the CP office and raised slogans against the district’s top cop and state government for failing to trace the culprits behind the crime.

Joint CP, Headquarters, Harish Dayama asked the protesters to come and meet the CP but protesters wanted the CP to himself come out of his office and receive memorandum. When the CP didn’t turn up, the protesters fumed and went outside the CP office and jammed road for an hour.

Later, when the CP came out of his office and received the memorandum and assured the protesters that culprits will be held soon, then they lifted the dharna.

The CP told the protesters that an FIR was immediately lodged in the case and police teams are on the job to trace the culprits.

Mand leaves after Shiv Sena leaders bad-mouth DC

Gursimran Mand, who accompanied the Shiv Sena leaders to the DC office, left the protest midway after the protesters resorted to bad-mouthing DC Varinder Sharma. “These Shiv Sena leaders are just doing politics over cow to whom Hindu community adores and they are insulting the DC by resorting to bad-mouthing. It was my mistake to be part of the Shiv Sena protest as the latter are just here to get more gunmen only and least concerned about the cow slaughtering. However the Shiv Sena leaders have denied the allegations of Gursimran Mand.
