Outside a local court in Amritsar, Sandeep Singh Sunny, accused in the murder of Shiv Sena Taksali leader Sudhir Suri, was glorified. Being brought to the court on Sunday for a remand hearing, Sunny was greeted by the crowd, comprising members of Sikh organizations with flower petals, amid heavy sloganeering. Sunny had even raised his hand to acknowledge the support pouring out for him as the Punjab Police stood there as spectators. 


In an exclusive conversation with Republic, Harjeet Singh Grewal, General Secretary of the Punjab unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party, said, “Punjab police is one of the best in India. The widespread terrorism in the state was curbed by this police. But because of the useless government, the police have also become useless.” 


He added, “What is happening in Punjab, why are the criminals being glorified? Has he done something for which he should be meted treatment of this sort? This is nothing but an attempt to scare the Hindus, one community insulting the others. This should not happen.”
