Chandigarh: A SAD MLA and a supporter of
expelled party leader Manpreet Singh Badal on Thursday alleged that
a Punjab police officer, in an inebriated state, misbehaved
with his wife at his house in Amritsar.
"A DSP of Punjab Police came to my house last night... he
was under influence of liquor... he abused my wife... forcibly
took away arms and ammunitions of my security personnel,"
Manjinder Singh Kang, a legislator representing Beas
constituency in the state Assembly, told reporters here.
Condemning the alleged incident, Manpreet said he would
lodge protest against the police misbehaviour at the highest
"If something wrong happens with Kang or any member of
his family then Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal will
be directly responsible for it," Manpreet, who is also
Sukhbir`s cousin, said.
Kang further alleged that the Punjab police had pruned
his security cover despite a court directive to provide him
protection due to threat to him and his family.
"Since October 14 (when Manpreet aired his views against
Sukhbir), the security cover given to me had been drastically
pruned...," he said.
Kang, a Shaurya Chakra awardee, said that police failed
to register his complaint despite attempts made by him.
Recently, Kang had claimed that he had been receiving
threatening calls as he was supporting Manpreet.
