Home Guards assaulted at police station, video viral


Home Guards assaulted at police station, video viral

Fazilka, September 8

Five persons, including a woman, have been booked for assaulting Home Guard volunteers at the Arniwala police station in Fazilka district.

The police had lodged an FIR against Baljit Singh and his wife Kulwinder Kaur for gambling last week. Relatives of the accused tried to create trouble at the police station on Friday evening to protest against the registration of the case.

In a video clip of the incident, which went viral on the social media, the accused could be seen attacking the Home Guard volunteers with sticks, resulting in injuries to them.

Police official Sukhbir Singh said the incident occurred when Sukhwant Singh, the complainant in the gambling case, was in the police station. Two persons — Malkit Singh and Vikram Singh — tried to barge into the police station.

In the meantime, the accused, Baljit Singh, came with a warrant officer in a bid to prove that Malkit Singh and Vikram Singh had been illegally detained by the police. However, the Home Guard volunteers did not allow them to enter the police station. Following this, Baljit Singh, Malkit Singh, Vikram Singh, Joginder Kaur and Manjit Singh allegedly assaulted sentry Jaimas Masih and Constable Salwinder Singh, resulting in injuries to them. They have been admitted to the local civil hospital. — OC
