Former Congress MLA from Giddarbaha Raghbir Singh, on Thursday, filed a complaint with the Giddarbaha police seeking action against three people, one of them reportedly a brother of a SAD leader from the area, alleging that they had tried to kidnap him from his shop when he refused to hand them over the register of the proceedings of the Dharm Sabha, of which he is the elected president.
“I am president of the Dharm Sabha, Giddarbaha, which runs some educational institutions, a dharamshala, a community centre and a gaushala for the last about 25 years, but now some other people want to wrest the control of the dharmshala,” claimed Raghbir Singh. The former MLA has named Sunny Dhillon, brother of a senior SAD leader; Lakhwinder Singh, president of the truck union, Giddarbaha and one Sukhwinder Singh besides some unidentified people in the complaint.
Raghbir alleged, “The brother of a senior SAD leader, accompanied by some other people on Wednesday evening, came to my shop and demanded the proceedings register, but I refused to hand over the register of the Sabha. They were also carrying some weapons and tried to kidnap me. When, some people came to the spot, they fired a shot in the air and fled.”
He also claims to have met CM Parkash Singh Badal in this regard. “If the police failed to act, we shall stage a protest before police station of Giddarbaha,” he said. “We have got a complaint and are looking into it. The action will be taken after verifying facts,” said Partap Singh, SHO of Giddarbaha.
