Sources said that all nine Nihang groups at Singhu border held a four-hour long mahapanchayat yesterday late night at Bharat Plaza in Singhu, after which they decided to stay on at the protest site.
The Nihangs have threatened that they will make sure that the four of their companions who have surrendered in this case will be released by ‘force’ from the police custody.
The family was barely managing two square meals a day when Lakhbir was alive and would work in the village fields or in the grain market of Tarn Taran district for his livelihood.
Sources claim that the Nihangs beat up this person to death who is yet to be identified for allegedly desecrating the Guru Granth Sahib.
BJP MLA from Fatikroy constituency Sudhangshu Das said he would raise the issue of population control and protection of cows in the coming state assembly session in national interest.
The two 'Nihangs', identified as Mehatab Singh and Gurdev Singh, were wanted in a murder case at Nanded in Maharashtra.
