Sikh leaders cut across party lines, lodge strong protest against police atrocities
Gramin Sewa driver, his son beaten by Delhi Police

Early Times Report
Jammu, June 18: Delhi policemen beating up a Gramin Sewa driver, Sarabjeet Singh, and his son Balwant Singh triggered outrage. Political parties condemned the violent incident following which Ministry of Home Affairs sought a detailed report from the Delhi Police.
The two Assistant Sub Inspectors and a constable were suspended and booked for the assault on the father- son duo.
Soon after the video of policemen thrashing the Sikh driver and his son went viral the leaders of the Sikh community cut across the party lines and condemned the incident.
A delegation led by Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) president Manjinder Singh Sirsa along with Sarabjeet Singh met the Delhi Police Commissioner, appealing him not to register a cross-FIR. They also met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who assured them justice in the case. DGTA, an NGO of Sikhs, has written to Home Minister Amit Shah seeking justice for the Gramin Sewa driver.
Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal urged Union Home minister Amit Shah to take a strict action against the police personnel responsible for brutal attack on innocent Sikhs by dismissing them from service and registering an attempt-to-murder case against them.
Sukhbir said, "The Delhi cops behaved like animals by brutally assaulting an old Sikh man and his son in front of Mukherjee Nagar police station. The old man was beaten up and dragged on the road despite pleas by his son. Later, the teenager was also beaten up mercilessly."
In a joint statement, AAP MLAs Kultar Singh Sandhwan, Prof Baljinder Kaur, Kulwant Singh Pandori, Jai Kishan Rori and Manjit Singh Bilaspur said the Modi-led government should show a little sensitivity towards minorities across the country and protect their religious identities and sentiments. They demanded a judicial probe into the barbarous act, which they said, was a case of police highhandedness.
Taking on Sukhbir and Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal, the AAP leaders said they should immediately take up the issue with their alliance partner in Delhi to secure justice for the victims by getting the erring cops sacked.
DSGMC chief Manjinder Singh Sirsa said, "Everyone can see that the old man did not harm anyone. In fact, his son was not at all aggressive yet they both were beaten up mercilessly. We stand on our demand that all cops involved must be sacked."
Shiromani Gurdawara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) demanded a high-level probe into the incident. Chief Khalsa Dewan chief Nirmal Singh and the Dal Khalsa demanded strongest action against the erring officers of the Delhi Police.
"Shameful incident of @DelhiPolice ruthlessly beating up Sarabjeet Singh & Balwant Singh over a petty issue. Request HM @AmitShah to ensure justice" Chief Minister of Punjab, Captain Amrinder Singh wrote on the twitter.
