A day after media reported that a Dalit man and his wife had gone missing after he was allegedly thrashed and stripped on the suspicion of theft, the Patiala police on Wednesday registed a case against accused.
Those booked includes former Youth Akali Dal president, Patiala, Kulwinder Singh, alias Vicky Riwaz, who had allegedly pointed a gun at the victim, and his accomplices. The other two accused are Phone Zone owner Amandeep Chintu and Sandeep Singh.
Patiala SSP Mandeep Singh Sidhu said he read the report and decided to seek a report from the police station concerned. “After seeing the video clip, I asked the SHO concerned to immediately register a case in this regard,” he added. “Those who shot the video, abused and thrashed the Dalit man will be taken to task as per law,” he said.
