Punjab: Punjab police on Tuesday claimed to have cracked one of the seven cases of sacrilege of holy books in the state with the arrest of two brothers, who committed the offence in connection with “someone in Australia”.
A Special Investigation Team (SIT) under ADGP IPS Sahota constituted after the sacrilege incident in Bargari village gurudwara in Faridkot and later at six other places in the state, concluded that “the accused became soft targets of anti national forces due to greed and ambition of becoming rich”.
Sahota said the two brothers, identified as Rupinder Singh and Jaswinder Singh, of Panjgrain village of Faridkot, were arrested in connection with the first incident of sacrilege in the state in Bargari village in Faridkot, where a violent clash erupted between police and Sikh protesters in which two persons were killed.
“Police took them into custody after intercepting their mobile calls between October 14 to 16,” he said.
He also read out the transcripts of the calls between the two brothers before media here.
“The brothers were in touch with someone in Australia,” he said, adding that police was trying to trace the person abroad.
