Chandigarh: Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Badal said that he won’t reply to Justice Ranjit Singh Gill Commission in Bargari sacrilege probe. Badal in a communication to the Chairman of the Commission of Inquiry probing the incidents of sacrilege during the SAD-BJP tenure, has “resolved not to reply”.
According to The Tribune reports Sukhbir said the “present commission is headed by a known Congressman who is a friend of Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh.”
The former Deputy CM also wrote that he had not received the original communication “for which the reminder, now, had been sent”. He said he did not even know the questions in the original one. The SAD told the Chairman to “recuse yourself from chairing the commission.”
It’s pertinent to note that despite the change of regime in Punjab and the probe by a special investigation team (SIT), the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and two commissions of inquiry into the Bargari sacrilege incident, the case remains unsolved even after two years.
The torn pages of the Guru Granth Sahib found at Bargari village in Faridkot district on October 12, 2015 and Sri Guru Garnth Sahib (Sikh holy book) has stolen from a gurdwara at Burj Jawahar Singh Wala village on June 1, 2015.
The Capt Amarinder Singh government had constituted the Justice Ranjit Singh Gill Commission in April last year to probe all cases of sacrilege in the state. The panel is yet to submit its final report.
