Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder Singh on Sunday sought an ‘independent and credible probe’ into the allegations against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA in Delhi, Naresh Yadav, that he masterminded the desecration of Quran in Malerkotla.

“Given the sensitivity of the matter, we need to be cautious and get the issue probed by an independent agency to bring out the truth,” he said.

Pointing fingers at the SAD-BJP alliance and AAP, Capt said it was an act done deliberately to hurt the sentiments of a particular community for vested interests. Amarinder said he was hopeful that Yadav, who was on camera named as the mastermind by one of the accused, will cooperate in the investigations.
