  1. Dear reporter, why don’t mention as the culprits are belongs to BAJRANG DAL and Student wing of BJP ABVP? Sorry , it is partial report . “A Sikh youth was badly beaten up by people of a certain community who were holding some demonstration near Hall Bazaar at Amritsar.”

  2. Neha ji @ Culprits are belonged to DALIT organizations , not BAJRANG DAL members.

    As per media reports a Sikh youth was brutally thrashed on Saturday (March 15) by demonstrators in Amritsar for no apparent reason after he asked for a way to reach to his shop near Bhandari Bridge.

    Activists of various Dalit organizations were protesting at Bhandari Bridge in support of their demands, including construction of a temple at Ram Teerath.
    As per media reports the victim, Jasbir Singh, an Amritdhari Sikh youth, said that he had requested the protesters to let him go to his shop, and without any provocation, he was beaten by some of the Dalit youths. He alleged that they removed his turban off his head and fist cuffed him. They also pulled his hair in the presence of some senior police officials.
