Sikh preacher Baljit Singh Daduwal and his supporters were on Monday detained on their way to an Operation Bluestar anniversary function in Amritsar.

Based on a secret input, police caught Daduwal and 10 of his supporters at about 5am near Talwandi Sabo. At about 3pm, all were released. The preacher accused the state government of attacking his personal freedom by disallowing him to visit the Golden Temple for praying, besides observing the anniversary of the 1984 military raid.
