There have been further updates received on television from Sant Baba Ranjit Singh Ji Dhadrianwale.

They have confirmed that one Singh (Bhai Jaspal Singh Ji) was Shaheed in Gurdaspur and the other is only injured, in hospital.

A meeting was held today between Sant Dhadrianwale, the Akal Takht Jathedar and a few other leaders.

It is said Chief Minister Badal called the Akal Takht Jathedar and asked, “What are you doing at Jaspal Singh’s funeral and why are you staging a Dharna?”

The Jathedar replied, “Even if I have to sit here until tomorrow, I will. Until the SSP is suspended and other demands of arresting people are met, we will not move from here.”

Sant Dhadrianwale and the Jathedar had demanded that the Government suspend and charge those named who were specifically responsible for the Shaheedi of the young Singh. The Singh’s were made to wait for hours by the Police.

When no progress was being made, Sant Dhadrianwale, the Akal Takht Jathedar and other leaders gave a joint statement to call a Bandh in Gurdaspur tomorrow.

The Government has bowed and both the SSP and DSP are said to have been suspended, Naib Tehsildar has been suspended and FIRs have been registered against SI Joginder Singh. Shiv Sainiks will be arrested.

After a 7-8 hour protest and dharna, respecting the family of Shaheed Bhai Jaspal Singh Ji, the body is now being taken back to his village for the funeral. Around 7,000-8,000 Sangat are present.

On another note, it is said Sant Dhadrianwale have told viewers on television that the Jathedar is remaining true to his word.
