Various Sikh Organization & DGPC Members Block Jammu & Pathankot National Highway to protest against the anti social elements who allegedly beat a youth in Market in Jammu on Saturday.
Prominent Sikh leaders of the state have expressed their disgust over the situation, saying that even if the boy was a fugitive, it is only the law who can decide the punishment. People don’t get the right to abuse someone publicly by beating them up. They protested saying that the way the turban and hair of the Sikh youth were discarded, it has offended the entire community and they would not stop protesting unless the two accused men are behind bars.
IGP Danish Rana gave assurance saying that the culprits will be arrested soon and an FIR has been filed against them.
