Tarn Taran district Congress president Sukhpal Singh Bhullar was reportedly felicitated at a religious function held in memory of the then prime minister Indira Gandhi’s assassins at Jhabbal village, 15 km from here, on Thursday night.

Organised by radical Sikh outfit Guru Granth Sahib Satkar Committee and other groups at Gurdwara Baba Langah, the function was also attended by sacked Panj Pyaras of the Akal Takht and other Congress leaders, including state secretary Harsharan Singh Malla.

Bhullar, who attended the function along with his supporters, was honoured with a ‘siropa’ by the satkar committee chief, Manjit Singh. However, the Congress leader did not address the people, who gathered there to pay tributes to Indira’s assassins Satwant Singh, Beant Singh and Kehar Singh.
