TARN TARAN: The Aam Aadmi Party workers protested outside Chohla Sahib police station, demanding quashing of the FIR lodged against the party’s Karmuwala circle head Sawinder Singh Chamba.Party leaders said Chohla Sahib police have falsely implicated Sawinder in an attempt to murder case.
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Chamba in a false case.The administration should conduct an independent inquiry into the matter and the case should be withdrawn forthwith.”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.
They said that if the police fails to do so, they will hold statelevel protest.The protesters were appeased by SDM Amanadeep Kaur with an assurance of conducting an independent probe into the case. HTC
