Khadoor Sahib con­stituency in-charge Bhupin­der Singh Bittu said that po­lice have been work­ing un­der pres­sure of the rul­ing party. He said that Congress has been strid­ing on the path that was pre­vi­ously cho­sen by the SADBJP gov­ern­ment. “We will not tol­er­ate any wrong ac­tion against our party work­ers. The mat­ter will be brought to at­ten­tion of Arvind Ke­jri­wal and se­nior lead­ers of the state wing,” said Bittu.

AAP’s dis­trict pres­i­dent Man­jin­der Singh Sidhu said, “The SHO should be trans­ferred im­me­di­ately as he has im­pli­cated Chamba in a false case.The ad­min­is­tra­tion should con­duct an in­de­pen­dent in­quiry into the mat­ter and the case should be with­drawn forth­with.”

The pro­test­ers gave an ul­ti­ma­tum to the po­lice ad­min­is­tra­tion to quash the FIR by Oc­to­ber 12.
