The court of judicial magistrate, Faridkot, on Friday, issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against three absconding members of Dera Sacha Sauda’s national committee. They were named accused in two Bargari sacrilege cases by the Punjab Police’s special investigation team (SIT).

The SIT sought arrest warrants of three Haryana residents namely Sandeep Bareta, Pardeep Keller, and Harsh Dhuri. The SIT claimed that sacrilege was committed by them.

However, police have failed to arrest them since 2018 when they were first named in cases related to sacrilege incidents in Moga and Bathinda districts in 2015.

The hearing has been adjourned to July 30. If the police failed to arrest them, the court will start a proceeding to declare them POs in two cases wherein torn pages of a “bir” (copy of Guru Granth Sahib) were found scattered in Bargari and the other one in which three derogatory posters were put up near gurdwaras at Bargari and Burj Jawahar Singh Wala villages.
