CHANDIGARH, Punjab—After interrogating actor turned farmer activist Deep Sidhu for seven days, the Delhi police today produced him before the Court of Metropolitan Magistrate Bhujali and sought further extension in his remand while claiming that his custody was necessary for further investigation in January 26’s incident to identify other “accused”.
Interestingly, the Court extended Deep Sidhu’s police remand for another seven days.
Notably, Deep Sidhu is being portrayed as a mastermind of January 26’s incident when the farmers had hoisted two flags Nishan Sahib (Sikh flag) and farmers protest flag on an empty pole on the Lal Qila.
The same day, an incident of violence had also occurred between some farmers and Delhi police cops, during which the cops had to jump from the backside wall of Lal Qila.
During the last seven days remand, Deep Sidhu was taken to Lal Qila by the Delhi police along with another accused Iqbal Singh to recreate the scene of events that unfolded there on January 26.
Deep Sidhu has been charged under the Indian Penal Code including rioting (147 and 148), unlawful assembly (149), attempt to murder (120-B), criminal conspiracy (120-B), assaulting or obstructing public servant (152), dacoity (395), culpable homicide (308) and disobedience to order promulgated by public servant (188).
