Ludhiana, Punjab: Jaswant Singh Cheema, in charge, Shiromani Akali Dal (A), here has alleged that the police had failed to take any action against those who had attacked him. Instead, an FIR was lodged against him only.
Briefing mediapersons here today, Cheema alleged that on August 24, he was attacked by some influential persons. The police, under pressure from the ruling party, had registered a false case against him (Cheema) and he was being falsely implicated in it.
Cheema said he was extending a helping hand to a poor and needy family when a few persons attacked him.
District president, SAD (A) (Rural), Tarlok Singh Dalla, said Cheema was badly beaten up by miscreants and the Salem Tabri Police had registered a false complaint against him.
Dalla alleged that since the Modi government came to power in the Centre, minorities were in trouble. Dalla said they would resort to agitation if the case against Cheema was not withdrawn.
