Amritsar: Shriomani Akali Dal Amritsar president Simranjit Singh Mann has yet again been booked under sedition charges for allegedly raising pro-Khalistan slogans.

It is not the first time that the two times former MP was booked for raising slogans in favour of Khalistan.

Earlier, he had faced 80 cases in different places of Punjab and outside the state for Khalistan-related activities.

Only two cases, one in Amritsar and another in Patiala, now remains pending against him.

Mann was booked under Section 124 A (sedition) of IPC as two days back he had raised pro-Khalistan slogans and instigated Sikh devotees inside the Golden Temple to raise their voice in favour of the separate Sikh state.

He has hit back at the police, saying they have no jurisdiction to register case against him as whatever happened inside the Golden Temple does not come their purview.
