Delhi Police has announced Rs 1 lakh as reward on Lakhbir Singh alias Lakha Sidhana who is an alleged conspirator in the Republic Day violence that took place during the farmers' tractor march.
Lakha Sidhana, aka Lakhbir Singh, has been hiding since then and hence reward has been announced to nab him. Reportedly, he has been posting several videos on social media post the Republic Day violence.
Meanwhile, the teams of Delhi Police Crime Branch and Special Cell are conducting search operations in Punjab, Haryana and Delhi-NCR.
In his last video, he was seen urging his followers to support Deep Sidhu. It is pertinent to mention that Sidhu was arrested earlier after a reward of Rs 1 lakh leading to his arrest was announced by the Delhi police.
Reportedly, Sidhana sends videos on Telegram and Signal apps to his supporters who later upload them on his Facebook account.
The Delhi Police sources stated that he has been moving between Haryana and Punjab and also visited the protest sites where his supporters are still there.
The police officials are hopeful that Sidhana will soon be nabbed. It may be recalled that Deep Sidhu has alleged that he knew Lakha Sidhana but stated that there was no planning with him regarding the violence.
On Saturday, Delhi Police took Deep Sidhu and Iqbal Singh, arrested in connection with the Republic Day violence, to recreate the scene of violence at Red Fort.
