Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Wednesday ordered the withdrawal of Section 307 against Farm Laws protestors who dumped cow dung outside an ex-BJP minister’s house.
Captain Amarinder, who also holds the Home portfolio, ordered the transfer of the SHO who had registered the`attempt to murder’ case, which is now being probed by a Special Investigative Team (SIT).
The Chief Minister said the SHO had gone overboard in registering a case under Section 307 of the IPC. “There was no attempt to murder,” he said, referring to the Hoshiarpur incident, in which a group of protestors had unloaded a trolley full of cow dung in front of former Punjab minister Tikshan Sud’s residence.
Meanwhile, the Chief Minister termed the arrest of Punjabi singer Shree Brar for promoting gun culture in a music video correct and justified.
Promoting gangsterism and gun culture in this manner was wrong, he said, adding that the case had been registered correctly in the matter which related to an old song of the singer.
Captain Amarinder made it clear that the arrest had no connection with the singer’s video in support of the protesting farmers, which was appreciable
