Punjab Congress workers today protested against the alleged inaction of police in a case of "murderous attack" on a party worker and blocked road traffic at Baghapurana in the district for around two hours.
"The blockade lasted for about two hours and traffic was disrupted from Baghapurana to Kotkapura, Muktsar, Mudki, Faridkot and Ferozepur," police sources said.
The Congress workers led by Moga Congress committee president Darshan Singh Brar were protesting against police's alleged inaction in arresting those responsible for "murderous attack" on Roop Singh, a party worker, who was seriously injured after some armed persons attacked him on May 6, they said.
Police had registered a case against unidentified persons on the complaint of Roop Singh's wife Baldev Kaur, but have failed to make any arrests in the case so far.
The attack on Roop Singh was the result of clashes between Akali and Congress workers on polling day on April 30, alleged Brar.
Brar asked the police to take immediate action against those behind the attack failing which Congress workers will stage state level protests.
Meanwhile, Moga SSP S Bhupati said police had registered a criminal case in this matter under the Arms Act, trespassing and attempt to murder of IPC, and the investigation is in progress.

The order, issued by DGP Sumedh Singh Saini to all senior superintendents of police (SSPs), states that the intelligence wing of the police has “discovered” that 600-700 cops in the state have been enrolled before the actual process of recruitment was even started. These policemen have even been given salaries, says the DGP’s order.
