The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), the Punjab government and the Centre on Thursday sought time from the Punjab and Haryana high court to submit their replies on a petition challenging the revocation of the order to screen Punjabi movie ‘The Mastermind Jinda Sukha’.

The court bench of justice HS Sidhu has asked all parties to submit their replies by October 20.

The petitioner, Sangrur resident Darshan Singh, who is also the producer of the movie, had approached the high court on September 19.

The petitioner had submitted that the movie was cleared for public viewing on July 24 by the CBFC after effecting some cuts, but on September 9, the certificate given was revoked. No new material had come on record for revoking the certificate granted to the petitioner. It was done by the CBFC on the instructions of the central government, the petitioner had alleged.

The movie is based on the lives of Sukhdev Singh Sukha and Harjinder Singh Jinda, the assassins of Gen AS Vaidya, who had led Operation Bluestar in 1984.
