A day after it was reported that Akali MP from Ferozepur Sher Singh Ghubaya’s son Davinder, along with his mother, would join the Congress, Punjab vigilance bureau (VB) sleuths on Tuesday raided the Ghubaya College of Engineering and Technology run by the family at Sukhera Bodla in Jalalabad.

Ghubaya’s son Davinder Singh confirmed the development. A VB team led by a deputy superintendent of police seized records from the college. Talking to a section of the media, Ghubaya said the records were handed over to VB sleuths. “We have done nothing illegal,” claimed Ghubaya, who along with his supporters spent entire day to explain that neither he nor his family will leave the Akali Dal.

On Monday, Congress sources had confirmed that Ghubaya’s wife and son would be joining the party on Tuesday in the presence of state party chief Captain Amarinder Singh in New Delhi on Tuesday.

Sources say Ghubaya decided to strike back after “feeling sidelined” by Sukhbir, for whom he had vacated the Jalalabad seat in the 2009 assembly bypolls.

Sukhbir’s seat Jalalabad is now being looked after by his officer on special duty Satinderjit Singh Manta and Ghubaya has been conspicuous with his absence from “sangat darshans” as well as other visits of Sukhbir since the past many months.
