Punjab Police on Friday reiterated that a “fair and transparent” investigation was being conducted into the arrest of two Sikh brothers allegedly behind the October 12 desecration of the Guru Granth Sahib at Bargari village in Faridkot.
Police said the role of Melbourne-based Sukhjit Singh , who had refuted the allegation of funding the Bargari sacrilege, would be taken to its logical conclusion. “The role of Sukhjit is being investigated by the special investigation team (SIT). The plea he has taken will be examined,” said additional director general of police (crime) IPS Sahota, who heads the SIT.
“Even funding from abroad will be examined,” the police officer said, reacting to the statement of Sukhjit that he had sent the money on “humanitarian grounds”.
