MP Policeman drags Sikh man by hair, pushes other in a shocking video
Bhopal : The Sikh community is angered with the act of Madhya Pradesh Policemen who can be seen thrashing and assaulting two Sikh men in a video tweeted by Sukhbir Badal.
The incident has been reported from Rajpur tehsil of Barwani district. It has been learned that the family of Giani Prem Singh Granthi - who was among those assaulted – had an argument with the Madhya Pradesh cops over setting up a stall in the area.
In the video, Prem Singh can be seen getting dragged by a policeman by hair in full public view and another policeman can be seen pushing another turban man who apparently tried to come to help Prem Singh.
The turbaned man can be seen requesting the police with folded hands to not beat up Prem Singh.
Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal took to Twitter to condemn the incident.
"Too shocking for words! The barbaric & humiliating attack on Giani Prem Singh Granthi & other Sikhs in Madhya Pradesh is utterly inhuman & unacceptable. I urge CM @ChouhanShivraj to set an example of punitive action against those who treat the sword of the nation with such contempt," Badal tweeted.
"Beastly attack on Giani Prem Singh Granthi & other Sikhs in MP is an outrage against humanity. Utterly reprehensible & unacceptable! #Sikhs all over the world are deeply shocked. I urge CM @ChouhanShivraj to take imm & examplary action against all those guilty of this brutality," Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal tweeted.
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has suspended an assistant sub-inspector and a head constable.
CM said, "Such barbarism and erratic behaviour won't be tolerated at any cost. The guilty will be punished for the misdeeds." Chouhan has also ordered a probe into the matter.
