Kotkapura firing case: SIT chargesheet persecution and not prosecution, alleges SAD
Chandigarh, February 25: Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Saturday termed the chargesheet filed against its president Sukhbir Singh Badal in the 2015 Kotkapura police firing case as persecution and not prosecution. The party announced to contest the "premeditated-fabricated move legally as well as in the people’s court".
The senior SAD leadership, while addressing mediapersons, also warned Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann not to do politics on this sensitive issue and alleged that the AAP government had filed the blatantly vindictive chargesheet to hide its failures on all fronts.
“The SAD will explore all options, including filing a contempt of court case. No case is made out against Sukhbir Singh Badal, who was out of the state and can in no manner whatsoever be termed as a mastermind as has been done in the charge sheet”, the party added.
