Durg Bandh over killing of Sikh man

Tuesday, 19 September 2023 | Staff Reporter | BHILAI

A bandh was observed on Monday over the death of a 32-year-old man from the Sikh community who was thrashed by a group of men last week in Durg district in Chhattisgarh.

Business establishments were shut in Durg and Bhilai cities till late afternoon during the bandh called by the Chhattisgarh Sikh Panchayat.

Four persons were arrested and a teenage boy was detained on Saturday for beating Malkeet Singh alias Veeru to death in Khursipar area.

The bandh, supported by the BJP and the Chamber of Commerce, was observed from 9 am to 2 pm.

The body of the deceased is in a hospital in Raipur as his family has refused to cremate the remains demanding a government job for his widow and compensation of Rs 20 lakh, said Arvindar Singh Khurana, president of the Gurudwara Shri Guru Singh Sabha (Durg).

Durg collector Pushpendra Singh Meena said the district administration has offered Rs 5 lakh and a contractual job in the government to a family member of the deceased but the family is yet to accept them.
