Jalandhar, September 17

Lok Insaaf Party (LIP) leader Simarjit Singh Bains and his brother Balwinder Singh Bains were detained near Lamma Pind Chowk here today when they began their march against the post-matric scholarship scam. The Dalit Vidyarthi Bachao Yatra began from Khuralgarh Sahib yesterday in Nawanshahr and was to be taken out in Jalandhar today. The yatra is being held to seek the dismissal of Cabinet Minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot and a CBI probe into the issue.

Bains brothers and 20 of their supporters were booked for violating Covid protocol. An FIR has been filed against them under Section 188 of the IPC, Section 3 of the Epidemic Act and Section 51 of the Disaster Management Act.

DCP (Investigation) Gurmeet Singh said, “The LIP leaders have been booked for violating the Covid protocol. As they have applied for bail, they are being released shortly.” — TNS
