New Delhi: Harvinder Singh, the 26-year-old from Delhi who had hogged the limelight after he publicly slapped Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, is now under attack from goons who are thrashing him at will.
A leading newspaper reported today that Harvinder is having a harrowing time as he is being threatened by unnamed goons who have abducted and beaten him up many times - for his ‘social work’.
As per the newspaper, Harvinder had approached the police to file an FIR but they had refused. After the newspaper took up the issue, the police have now agreed to investigate the matter.
He was first attacked in mid-January when he was beaten up with hockey sticks and iron rods and the trouble worsened after local party workers asked him to join them for campaigning in local councillor elections or face retaliation.
However, Harvinder Singh, who finds pride in being known as an admirer of Bhagat Singh, says that he wasn’t deterred and that none can suppress his voice.
Singh, who had also slapped former telecom minister Sukhram, had got bail mid-December.
