Ludhiana, July 28
Senior leaders of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today made yet another bid to mount pressure on the city police for arresting LIP president and Atam Nagar MLA Simarjeet Singh Bains, who has been booked in a case of rape on the directions of a local court.
The SAD leaders, including former ministers Maheshinder Singh Grewal and Hira Singh Gabria, accompanied by former MLAs Ranjit Singh Dhillon and Harish Rai Dhanda, met the Commissioner of Police Rakesh Agrawal and told him that delay in arrest of Bains was creating an impression among people that the police force was openly helping the MLA and the rights of the victim were not being protected.
They alleged that even after the registration of an FIR, Bains and his supporters were openly threatening the rape victim, the witnesses were being intimidated and brazen attempts were being made to destroy evidence.
