Deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal surprised Ludhiana Police with his surprise visit.

Sukhbir Badal, accompanied by advisor to chief minister Parkash Singh Badal, Maheshinder Singh Grewal and district SAD chief Madan Lal Bagga turned up at Ghumar Mandi, after visiting the family of Harkeerat Singh, grandson of former chief minister Beant Singh, who ended his life in Chandigarh on May 29, in Kotli village of Payal sub-division. Sukhbir Badal visited a Chinese restaurant in Ghumar Mandi area and also met people during his short visit.

Security arrangements were made immediately after the police came to know about his presence. Senior police officials also rushed to Ghumar Mandi area. A senior police official said it was an unexpected visit, as the deputy CM has no prior programme in Ludhiana. As the police got information about his presence force was deployed immediately in the area.
