SANGRUR, Punjab—The Punjab police has made three arrests in relation to sacrilege of the sacred Muslim Holy Scripture ‘Quran Sharif’ in Malerkotla on June 24th. The holy scripture of ‘Quran Sharif’ were found ablaze in Malerkotla that resulted in violent protests by the Muslim community in Malerkotla.
Punjab police have informed us that the trio culprits of sacrilege were arrested on a tip off near Sangrur in a Mahindra Jeep. Three pairs of surgical gloves, a 50-gram gold coin, a gold chain and a white gold bead chain were recovered from the trio culprits.
The trio culprits have been identified as Vijay Kumar (resident of Jind of Haryana), Nand Kishore Goldy and his son Gaurav (both residents of village Begowal of Pathankot). As per media reports, Vijay Kumar is a well-established businessman who is currently residing in Delhi and Gaurav was working as an employee in his Bio-Fertilizer firm.
It has come into light that Nand Kishore Goldy is the State Secretary of Vishav Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the trio culprits were upset over the Pathankot and Gurdaspur terror attacks.
Despite tight lipping of Punjab police about VHP’s hand behind these sacrileges, the State Vice-President of VHP Devinder Kumar held a Press conference in Sangrur and claimed that the Police framed Nand Kishore Goldy in the case. He even claimed that Nand Kishore Goldy was arrested from his residence on June 25th and the story of their collective arrest was fabricated by the Police.
The Chief Organizing Secretary of the Youth Akali Dal Amritsar, S. Papalpreet Singh, said that it was very unfortunate that radical Hindu organizations who claim to be plaintiffs of ‘National Integrity’ are demolishing the communal harmony in Punjab. He sought strict action against these culprits. via Sikh24
