SULTANPUR LODHI, Punjab (April 26, 2015)—Satkar Committee member Karamjit Singh who was arrested on Thursday for allegedly beating pathis ‘mercilessly’ was presented before the court of Manpreet Kaur (additional civil judge, senior division Sultanpur Lodhi) by the Police. The court allowed the Police to keep him in its remand for three days.
Police demanded his remand citing various arguments which were agreed upon by the judge. He said that the police are raiding on various places on the basis of interrogation.
Meanwhile, Satkar Committee chief Bhai Sukhjit Singh Khosa said that his residence is under surveillance of Lohian Police and various policemen have been deployed there.
It is notable that Satkar Committee is in headlines these days after a video of thrashing pathis went viral on social media. In the video, members of the organization are beating up the pathis for committing disrespect of Sri Guru Granth Sahib and violating edict of Sri Akal Takht Sahib. However, their way of acting against the respective pathis courted controversy and a Punjabi newspaper Ajit is spreading ‘propaganda’ against the Committee to ensure rigid action against them.
