Wanted Lakha Sidhana reached in Bathinda rally on Tuesday in Mehraj. With a huge crowd, the rally commences.
Wanted by Delhi Police for instigating violence during the farmers’ tractor rally at Red Fort on Republic Day, gangster-turned-social activist Lakhbir Singh, alias Lakha Sidhana, has called a rally in support of the farm agitation in Bathinda district’s Mehraj, the ancestral village of chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh.
Police are also present in the rally but it is still not clear that he will be arrested here or not.
In a Facebook video posted on Friday night, Sidhana urged people to gather in large numbers at the grain market in Mehraj, 35 km from the Bathinda district headquarters.
He said farm union leaders should also stay united against the Centre to strengthen the fight against the three farm laws. A native of Sidhana village in Bathinda district, Lakha is on the run since January 26 and has hinted that he will join the rally on his home turf.
Delhi Police had on February 14 announced a reward of ₹1 lakh for information on the whereabouts of Sidhana. Various teams of Delhi Police, along with the special cell, had conducted searches for the gangster across Punjab, Haryana and Delhi-NCR.
Sidhana was last seen in Punjab when he had visited Moga on January 20 to garner support for the tractor rally on Republic Day.
