On giving information about actor Deep Sidhu involved in the ruckus at Red Fort on the occasion of Republic Day, Delhi Police has announced a cash reward of Rs one lakh. Also, Delhi Police has announced a reward for seven others. A reward of 50-50 thousand rupees has been announced on these people. The Delhi Police has shared this information on its website.
Delhi Police has announced a reward of Rs one lakh on Deep Sidhu, Jugraj Singh and Gurujant Singh, Gurjot Singh, besides a reward of Rs 50,000 each on Buta Singh, Iqbal Singh, Jagbir Singh, and Sukhdev Singh. Although the Delhi Police is announcing the reward on Deep Sidhu, on the other hand, Deep Sidhu has been quite active on social media since the violence. In the coming days, he releases a video and declares himself to be friendly to the farmers. She has released several videos after the violence in Punjabi, Hindi, and English. Despite this, Delhi Police’s hands are empty.
Supreme Court refuses judicial inquiry into the violence on Republic Day
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court dismissed the petitions seeking an inquiry into the violence during the tractor rally in the national capital on Republic Day. However, the court allowed the petitioners to approach the government for this. A petition filed in the apex court also requested to constitute a commission headed by a retired judge of the apex court to investigate the incident.
A bench of Chief Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde, Justice AS Bopanna, and Justice V Ramasubrahmanyam cited that the Prime Minister himself had given a statement that the law would do its job. There is no need for court intervention if the government is investigating.
The bench said – We are sure that the government is investigating this and taking appropriate action.
Thousands of farmers took out a tractor parade on 26 January in favor of the Centre’s demand for withdrawal of three new agricultural laws, but chaos spread in the streets of Delhi shortly after. Protesters broke down police barricades at several places and also clashed with police. People involved in the demonstration vandalized vehicles and placed a religious flag on the Red Fort.
The PIL was filed by advocate Vishal Tiwari. Tiwari said that the incident on Republic Day in Delhi could have serious consequences for the common man. He argued that the investigation should not be one-sided and the other party should also be given a chance. On this, the Chief Justice said – It is natural that investigation means that both sides should be investigated. The incident also led to the disruption of Internet services. Many working people, especially lawyers, faced hardship due to the internet shut down.
The petition said that where there will be the talk of national security and public interest, it should also see who is responsible for creating the disturbance and how a peaceful movement suddenly turned violent. Who created the conditions that led to the violent protests. According to the petitioner, there may also be a conspiracy behind the incident, whose purpose is to defame and harm the peaceful movement. Had there not been a lapse from the police, such violence would not have happened at all.
