Gun-shot attack on Sikh leader: Police arrest CGPC president

Sunday, 17 November 2019 | PNS | Jamshedpur

After a week of the attack on Sikh leader Gurucharan Singh Billa  by bike-borne attackers at Sitaramdera on last Saturday, the police have arrested Gurmukh Singh Mukhe, president of Central Gurudwara Prabhandhak Samity (CGPC). Sitaramdera police arrested Mukhe and brought him to the police station for further investigation.

The injured Billa (50) who is presently undergoing treatment at the Tata Main Hospital for the gun-shot injuries had accused three persons belonging to the Sikh community to have conspired the attack.

Police had filed an FIR against Gurmukh Singh Mukhe, president of Central Gurudwara Prabhandhak Samity (CGPS).

The police had registered a case of attempted murder and Arms Act against the three suspects. The statement was made before the Sitaramdera thana OC, Anjani Kumar Singh.

OC, Sitaramdera said they are probing into the FIR lodged by Billa. Singh said they are investigating the incident. Mukhe was arrested as he has been accused in the gun shot incident. He said that the police will disclose further only after proper investigation.

Mukhe who had always been in controversy in the steel city for the past one decade was elected the CGPC in 2018 for a three years term. Notably, Mukhe was in the news a decade ago when he had allegedly cut his hair in the lock-up of Ulidih thana in Mango and had alleged the police to have cut the hair for humiliating him and also his community.
