Kapurthala lynching: Granthi was a pro-Khalistan ultra in past, says report

Caretaker Amarjit Singh

The caretaker of Nizampur Gurudwara, Amarjit Singh in Kapurthala, Punjab, where a man was lynched, accused of sacrilege, was a frequent visitor to Pakistan and worked as a pro-Khalistan ultra before turning unto a CAT, as per a report

According to the police report, Singh was in touch with a top Punjab police official, who had managed to remain in plum postings during SAD and Congress governments.

“We have gone through his passport records. We are also checking his phone records. The probe has found that he was in touch with one of our police officers. Besides, he had gone to Pakistan. During the investigation, Amarjit also revealed that he worked as a CAT commando and was in touch with some police officers,” said a senior cop in Punjab Police.

At least three contacts were established between Amarjit and the “an outside zone” police officer on the day of the crime as Kapurthala belongs to Jalandhar Zone.

Additionally, the police department has also seized Amarjit’s mobile phone and planning to file a murder case after they detected a suspicion in the way in which the “live video” of the lynching appeared.

 Moreover, Amarjit has filed a complaint, claiming that the migrant labourer had attempted to disrespect the Nishan Sahib flag after which FIR under charges of 295A (defiling a place of religious worship) was also filed, however, in the initial investigation of police it has been revealed that the man (now deceased) can only be seen eating rotis.

The reports suggest had Amarjit or others around him informed the police in time, the officer said, the man could have been booked for sacrilege and his life could have been saved.
