Former Deputy CM of Punjab Sukhbir Badal did not appear before the Special Investigation Team (SIT). He was summoned and called for questioning in the Kotkapura shooting incident. Sukhbir Badal was asked to appear at 10.30 am on Tuesday. Instead of coming to Chandigarh, Sukhbir Badal appeared in Zira Court. Sukhbir Badal said that he did not get any summons.
The Special Investigation Team has now come forward in this matter. He said that the police officers had gone to summon Sukhbir Badal with a courier. No one took the summons. He was told that Sukhbir Badal was abroad. After this, the SIT also summoned Vineet Pal Happy, who lives with Sukhbir Badal, on WhatsApp. Who even admitted to receiving the summons.
SIT’s question, whose order to shoot?
The Kotkapura shooting incident is in the year 2015. During that time, the Sikhs protesting against the sacrilege of Sri Guru Granth Sahib were fired upon. Sukhbir Badal was the Deputy CM of Punjab when this firing took place. He also had the Home Department. The SIT wants to ask them who gave the orders to open fire on the Sikhs? The then DGP Sumedh Saini has also been questioned in this case.
Sukhbir has given answers, SDM had given orders,
Sukhbir Badal has also replied that the SDM has given orders to shoot. The SDM has also given in writing about this. The SDM is still standing by his point. Sukhbir had also spoken about not getting the summons. However, he also said that thousands of such summons come in a case, there is no big deal in it.
AAP minister said – Firing does not happen without the government’s advice,
Punjab’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) minister Kuldeep Dhaliwal said that he is also in the government. Such firing would not have happened without the government’s advice. He blamed Sukhbir for the shooting.
