Shiromani Akali Dal alleges attack on Sukhbir Badal at Jalalabad in Punjab

Party claims 4 party workers injured in firing

Three Akali Dal workers are learnt to have suffered gunshot wounds after allegedly being attacked by Congress workers in Jalalabad on Tuesday, said Youth Akali Dal chief Parambans Singh Romana.

Though the exact sequence of the events were not known, Romana alleged the attackers were led by the brother of a Congress MLA.

He alleged the attack occurred at Jalalabad SDM’s office where Akali Dal president Sukhbir Badal had accompanied party candidates to file nomination for MC elections.

Romana alleged it was an attack on Sukhbir Badal as his SUV too was pelted with stones. “Sukhbir Badal is unhurt, though attackers opened fire at his bullet-proof car and pelted stones too,” Romana claimed.

Speaking to media, SSP Fazilka Harjit Singh confirmed four persons were injured, but their identity and party affiliation was being confirmed.

SAD condemns attack

Meanwhile, the Shiromani Akali Dal has condemned the attack.

In a statement, SAD spokesman Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said: “It seems there was a premeditated attempt on the SAD president’s life and the Jalalabad police were complice in this crime as they allowed the attackers a free run.

A high-level judicial inquiry should be ordered under the supervision of the Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.”
