The Punjab and Haryana high court on Thursday adjourned hearing on the petition of Sikh preacher Ranjit Singh Dhadrianwale demanding a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into May 17 attack on him.

The matter would be taken up on October 18. On the last date of hearing on August 17, the CBI had told high court that no inter-state ramifications were involved into the FIR registered for attack on Dhadrianwale. Hence, Punjab Police be allowed to continue with the probe. The state government is yet to respond to allegations of the Sikh preacher.

Acting on the petition of the Sikh preacher, his driver and two of his followers in June seeking CBI probe, the high court had sought response from the government. Preacher’s aide Bhupinder Singh was killed and Dhadrianwale injured in the shooting on May 17 in Ludhiana.
