Chandigarh, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal today condemned the attack on a Sikh family in Hisar by miscreants yesterday and urged Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar to take appropriate action in the matter.

In a statement here, the SAD president said it was condemnable that a Sikh family which had been living in Haryana for 43 years was termed as outsiders and attacked when they protested against inappropriate and vulgar remarks being made against their women folk. He four intoxicated miscreants physically assaulted a member of the family by tugging him holding his beard besides tossing his turban. “The goonda elements did not stop at this. They even kicked a seven month pregnant ‘amritdhari’ woman in the stomach”.

Mr Sukhbir Badal said despite such a crime, the Hisar police did not first reach the restaurant where the attack took place in time. He said the four miscreants were finally rounded up at the restaurant but by the time the aggrieved family reached the sector 16 police station in Hisar they were let off. He said the Hisar police did not even seem it fit to verify if the goondas were intoxicated at the time of the crime, as reported by the complainants.

The SAD president said in a further insult to the aggrieved family the Hisar police had registered a case against their male members under section 307 IPC. He demanded that this false case should be withdrawn immediately and that a case under section 295 A (hurting religious sentiments) and other appropriate sections should be registered against the four miscreants.

Meanwhile SAD Kalanwali legislator Balkor Singh visited the aggrieved family in Hisar and assured it full support. The Sikh sangat also collected at the Hisar gurdwara and decided to protest against this injustice. Balkor Singh said he had met the district police chief and demanded suspension of the Hisar Sector 16 police station SHO besides cancellation of the false case against the aggrieved family. He said the Hisar police had not taken any action on his memorandum.
