Punjabi actor-turned-activist Deep Sidhu(37) was cremated at Threeke village in Ludhiana on Wednesday. His body was kept at his younger brother advocate Mandeep Singh's house in the village where people in large numbers especially youth reached to pay tributes.
Youth carrying Kesari flags, photographs of Sidhu raised slogans 'Deep Sidhu Amar rahe"(Long Live Deep Sidhu", Khalistan Zindabad', Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale Zindabad etc. Nihangs in large number too came to attend the cremation.
People from across the state including from his native village of Muktsar, even from Haryana came to offer their condolences to the family. People present there remembered the farmer agitation days and how Deep took farmers protest against the black farming laws to the next level.
Most of the people attended the cremation termed his death as murder and a planned conspiracy. They also discarded the inquiry of Haryana police which denied any conspiracy behind his(deceased) death and termed it as accident only.
Suba Singh, uncle of deceased Sidhu said apparently it seems an accident but family would demand inquiry into the incident to find conspiracy if any behind the accident.
Deceased's real brother has not given any official statement regarding the death of his brother.
Meanwhile pall of gloom has descended on the Threeke village. Villagers said Deep was successful actor, advocate and good human being. They said whenever Deep used to visit Threeke, he used to hold talks over the farming issues and other issues of the country.
Prominent persons who attended the cremation were Simarjit Singh Mann of SAD(Amritsar), Lakha Sidhana, singer Gagan Anmol Mann etc
Sidhu was a close aide of BJP MP Sunny Deol, who contested from the Gurdaspur seat in Punjab during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. He had remained with Deol during the poll campaigning.
Sunny Deol took to twitter to mourn the demise of Punjabi actor.
