Tur­ban row

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - EDUCATION -

Two sep­a­rate con­tro­ver­sies erupted ear­lier this year when the tur­bans of two Sikh gen­tle­men were forcibly re­moved. In the first in­ci­dent, a protest­ing phar­ma­cist from Pun­jab was at the re­ceiv­ing end when cops re­moved his tur­ban. There was a huge up­roar over the in­ci­dent and the govern­ment even­tu­ally sus­pended a su­per­in­ten­dent of po­lice (SP) and a sta­tion house of­fi­cer.

In the sec­ond in­ci­dent, head con­sta­ble Bal­winder Singh was at the re­ceiv­ing end when an un­der­trial, en­raged over Singh re­fus­ing to al­low him to meet his fi­ancée, re­moved his tur­ban and burnt it.

The ac­cused, Amit Kam­boj, ended up with an­other case be­ing slapped against him.
