Sikh Youth Detained at Airport by Mumbai Police After Arrival from New Zealand

April 1, 2024 | By

Chandigarh: Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) has learnt that a Sikh youth was detained by Mumbai police today.

Hardeep Singh Baidwan, a resident of village Baidwan in Sahibzada Ajit Singh Mohali district, arrived today at the international airport in Mumbai from New Zealand where he was detained by Mumbai police. 

Sources told SSN that the Punjab police would take over his custody from Mumbai police.

It is learnt that Mumbai police have informed Hardeep Singh Baidwan that he was named in a case in Punjab. 

Sources told SSN that the Punjab police have named Hardeep Singh in a case related to the firing incident at Gurdwara Akal Bunga Sahib in Sultanpur Lodhi on November 23, 2023.

Notably, a five-member inquiry panel constituted by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) reportedly held Punjab chief minister Bhagwant Mann directly responsible for the police firing and violation of the Maryada (Sikh code of conduct) at the Akal Bunga Sahib gurdwara in Sultanpur Lodhi on November 23, 2023.

A report in Hindustan Times on 9 January 2024 SGPC president Harjinder Singh Dhami said: “Police fired unilaterally even as there were no signs of conflict inside the gurdwara. Akhand Path was going on at the gurdwara which was disrupted by police firing, tear gas, and cops entering the premises with shoes. There was no attempt to resolve the conflict between the two factions amicably”.

  • Update: On 4th April 2024, Hardeep Singh Baidwan was presented in a local court in Kapurthala and was sent on judicial custody. Hardeep Singh’s relatives told SSN that the police did not take his police remand.  (Last updated on 6 April 2024)
