Six people have been arrested by the SIT probing the incidents of the desecration of a religious text in Punjab’s Faridkot in 2015, an official said on Saturday.

The arrests by the Punjab Police Special Investigation Team (SIT) came amid a demand by several ruling Congress leaders for early action in the desecration of the Guru Granth Sahib and subsequent police firing incidents in Faridkot.

The SIT is led by Inspector General of Police SPS Parmar.

Assistant Inspector General Rajinder Singh Sohal, who is member of the SIT, confirmed about the arrest of the six persons, identified as Sukhjinder Singh, Shakti Singh, Ranjit Singh, Baljit Singh, Nishan Singh and Pardeep Kumar.

They will be produced in a Faridkot Court on Monday.

They had been booked in connection with three sacrilege incidents which had taken place in Faridkot in 2015.

In February this year, the CBI on the directions of the Punjab and Haryana High Court had handed over the documents and files related to the 2015 incidents to the Punjab Police SIT.

The previous SAD-BJP government had handed over the three cases — theft of a “bir” (copy) of the Guru Granth Sahib from a Burj Jawahar Singh Wala gurdwara; putting up of handwritten sacrilegious posters in Bargari and Burj Jawahar Singh Wala; and torn pages of the holy book found at Bargari–to the CBI for probe.

The Punjab government had handed over the probe to an SIT of the state police in September 2018 after the state Assembly passed a resolution withdrawing consent to the CBI to investigate these cases, noting lack of progress in the investigation.

  1. The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.
