    Shiv Sena Workers and SAD(A) Clash

    In a no-holds-barred clash, at least five activists of the Shiv Sena (Bal Thackrey) and Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) were injured when they clashed. The injured included Mr Ashwani Kumar Kukku, district president, Shiv Sena, and Mr Lakhwinder Singh Pandori Golan of the SAD (A). Apart from using swords and lathis, the activists of the warring groups exchanged blows.

    Previously, in an article in a magazine, Simranjit Singh Mann stated that he had been attacked by Shiv Sena workers last month and that the Sena supported the Parkash Badal wing of the Akali Dal during a rally last month in Amritsar. At that rally, supporters of Badal beat up several supporters of Simranjit Singh Mann.

    The clash exposed the 'inefficiency' of the local administration since it was virtually written on the walls that activists of both parties would clash following an open challenge thrown by Shiv Sena. The Shiv Sena had pasted big posters on various walls of the city, announcing that an effigy of Mr Simranjit Singh Mann, president, SAD (A), would be burnt.


    Mr Kukku had called upon his activists and other political parties, including SAD (Badal), to assemble in a local temple to chalk out a programme to burn the effigy of Mr Mann, using harsh language against the SAD(A) chief. Leaders and activists of SAD (A) also assembled here to counter the move of the Shiv Sena, under the leadership of Bhai Ram Singh and Mr Harbir Singh Sandhu, national general secretary and district president of the party. The police which failed to act initially, swung into action only after the burning of the effigy and the clash taking place.

    However, Mr S.K.Sinha, district police chief, said five activists of the SAD(A), including Mr Balwant Singh, Mr Balwinder Singh, Mr Vikramjit Singh, Mr Jagdeep Singh and Mr Jagdev Singh out of 15 persons had been arrested under Section 307 of Indian Penal Code. He said no one from the Shiv Sena had been arrested.


    While the SAD (A) has convened an emergency meeting of the party here tomorrow, the Shiv Sena has decided to arrange state-wide protests.

    The SP, Mr Manmohan Singh, alleged that the attack was initiated by SAD (A). However, the Khalra Mission Organisation held the Shiv Sena, RSS and SAD (Badal) responsible for the clash. The organisation has sought immediate release of all the five Sikh activists who were arrested after the clash.
