Shiv Sena Leader Arrested, Curfew Imposed in Patiala Following Anti-Khalistani Movement


Patiala: Hours after a clash broke out between two groups in Punjab’s Patiala during a protest against the Khalistan movement on Friday, 29 April, Shiv Sena leader Harish Singla, who was allegedly behind the rally, was arrested by the Punjab Police.

The decision was taken after a high-level meeting conducted by Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Bhagwant Mann.

Shiv Sena (Hindustan) cadre and Sikh activists clashed near the Kali Mata temple in the city, after the Sena’s anti-Khalistan rally was allegedly countered by a march by the Sikh activists. The march had been taken out from the Gurudwara Dukh Nivaran Sahib.

Singla had earlier been expelled by the Shiv Sena, who said that his actions had nothing to do with the party. Section 144 was also imposed by the District Magistrate from 7 pm on Friday till 6 am on Saturday.
