Bittu’s police remand extended by 4 days

bittu remandChandigarh, Punjab: Daljit Singh Bittu, president, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) Panch Pardhani, had tried to win over the Shingaar cinema bomb blast case prime witness by offering Rs 5 lakh. He had asked witness Sukhwant Singh not to depose against the accused in case.

This was claimed by the police in court proceedings here today when it produced Bittu and his accomplices for seeking police remand. It was also claimed that Bittu had given Rs 1.40 lakh to Gurbir Singh, one of the main accused in killing Lilly Sharma, a follower of Dera Sacha Sauda head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.

Duty Magistrate Kapil Sharma extended police remand of Bittu and his accomplices Hardeep Singh, Palwinder Singh, Jaspal Singh and Daljit Singh by four days.

Public Prosecutor Sukhchain Singh pleaded that hidden weapons were to be recovered from Bittu. He said the statement on concealing of weapons at a secret place was given by Bittu to the police during remand today.

He was also accused of reviving militancy in the state.

The defence opposed extension of police remand as the accused had already been in police remand for nine days.

Bittu and his accomplices were arrested on August 26 for indulging in unlawful activities, after the revelations made by alleged Babbar Khalsa terrorist Balbir Singh Bhootna.

Earlier, Bittu, a former militant, had launched protest against the Dera Sacha Sauda and other deras in the state.

  1. The arrest of Bhai Daljit Singh and other party men shows that Punjab/ Indian Government is trying not to allow even a peaceful movement for Sikh rights. I think they should read history carefully, Sikhs cannot be supressed by force. The movement will go on with the blessing of Waheguru.
