PHAGWARA: Hundreds of activists belonging to the Damdami Taksal, Sant Samaj and Doaba Samaj Sudhar Youth Wing, Punjab, sat on a dharna in the middle of the road near Konica Resorts in protest against the alleged attack on the car of Bhai Manjit Singh Duggan of the Damdami Taksal by some miscreants on the night of August 7 after an agitation of the Guru Ravi Dass Force near Mehli bypass.

Traffic on the Jalandhar-Chandigarh and Jalandhar-Ludhiana highways remained disrupted for more than three hours and thousands of commuters travelling in hundreds of vehicles remained stranded from 10.30 am to 1.30 pm on Thursday.

The protesters threatened to intensify their struggle if miscreants were not booked soon.

Long queues of hundreds of vehicles were seen stranded during the blockade. A special bus of “Bharat-Pakistan Shanti Karwan”, which started on July 28 from Mumbai and will reach Karachi in Pakistan via Wagha Border on August 14 was also seen stranded in the blockade.

Meanwhile, the buses to and from Delhi and Lahore were diverted via Jalandhar-Nakodar-Noormahal-Bilga-Phillaur-Ludhiana route due to the long traffic jam. Heavy police force was deployed on the blockade site to prevent any untoward incident and SP Kamaljit Singh Dhillon monitored the situation on the site.

However the dharna was lifted and the normal vehicular traffic was restored only when Deputy Commissioner Kapurthala alongwith Phagwara SDM Amarjeet Paul arrived at dharna site and assured them for justice and received a memorandum from the protesters.
