2015 Kotkapura firing: SAD takes on AAP, terms chargesheet result of 'political vendetta'
Chandigarh, March 3: The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Friday alleged that motivated leaks by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government with regard to the SIT report into the Kotkapura firing incident of 2015 and its timing for presentation in the court were a gross violation of the April 2021 Punjab and Haryana High Court order vis a vis cases of sacrilege and subsequent police actions at Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan.
The SAD alleged that the manner in which the AAP was judging and even announcing who would be found guilty in probes being done by the SIT into the Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan police firing incidents had made it clear that it was following a policy of "political vendetta" against its political opponents instead of ensuring justice in the cases.
In a statement here, SAD general secretary Parambans Singh Romana alleged that contrary to the directions of the HC, the AAP government was making public announcements indicating it not only had control over the outcome of the probes, but also had access to the probe reports.

Romana alleged that it was now clear that the AAP government did not have any interest in ensuring justice in either sacrilege or subsequent police firings cases in Kotkapura and Behbal Kalan and was only politicising these issues to divert attention from its failures on all fronts.
