Muktsar, August 20

A large number of people under the banner of the Punjab Khet Mazdoor Union today staged a protest outside the Lambi police station, demanding the arrest of accused in an alleged rape case.

They claimed that the police had not even registered the case under relevant Sections of the IPC. Tarsem Singh Khunde Halal, a farm labourer activist, allegedthat some persons of Mithri Budhgir village had raped a girl and made the video viral, but the police did not take appropriate action.

“We demand arrest of the accused and registration of a case under relevant Sections of the IPC,” he said.

The police had yesterday arrested Lachman Singh Sewewala, general secretary, Punjab Khet Mazdoor Union, in an old case. The protesters demanded his release as well. — TNS
