2 Sena men detained, let off

Tribune News Service

Ropar/Patiala, August 6

A day after the state government prohibited any kind of celebrations or protests in the wake of revoking Article 370 which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir, the district police took two Shiv Sena leaders into preventive custody here. The leaders, Nitin Nanda and Sanjiv Ghanauli, were released after a few hours.

BJP leader Parminder Sharma was also taken to the police station after he allegedly misbehaved with SSP Swapan Sharma over the issue last night.

It was around 11 am when the police reached the office of Nitin Nanda in Agampur village near Anandpur Sahib and shop of Sanjiv Ghanuali at Ghanauli village and took them to the police station. Soon, their supporters reached the police station. After a few hours, both were released after they promised that they would not be involved in any incident which could create communal tension in the region.

Parminder Sharma, state secretary of the BJP who was fielded by the party from Anandpur Sahib during the last Assembly elections, alleged that he was taken to the police station without any provocation on the instance of Ropar SSP Swapan Sharma.

He said yesterday police officials were issuing frequent warnings to him directing him not to organise any celebrations. When he contacted the SSP on the phone, the police chief got enraged and following this, officials, including Anandpur Sahib SHO Raj Pal Singh Gill, rounded him up, the BJP leader alleged.

Denying the allegations, the SSP said the BJP leader made two phone calls to him and used unparliamentary language following which he asked the local police officials to take action against him.

State BJP president Shwait Malik said, “It was strange that while the nation was celebrating the scrapping of Article 370, the police in Punjab was troubling BJP leaders. Actually, the BJP is expanding big time in Punjab and Capt Amarinder Singh is scared.”

Meanwhile, over a dozen persons, affiliated to a political outfit, were detained and booked by the police in the Patran town of Patiala after they burst crackers, held up traffic and raised slogans in support of the Central government’s decision to revoke Article 370. According to the police, 16 persons were booked by name, including some unknown men, for promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, rioting armed with deadly weapons and obstruction in public way.
