Patiala Clash Main Conspirator Barjinder Singh Parwana Arrested

New Delhi: Barjinder Singh Parwana, the chief conspirator in the Patiala clash, is no stranger to controversy. He is the self-proclaimed chief of Damdami Taksal Jatha Rajpura, a Sikh seminary, and he is currently facing four FIRs. Attempting to murder, breaching the arms act, issuing threats, and violating the disaster management act are among the earlier charges filed against Parwana.

The Inspector General (IG) of Patiala range, Mukhwinder Singh Chhina said that Barjinder Singh Parwana incited the mob on Friday. “Parwana is a prime accused who is the mastermind behind all the violence. He is responsible for creating a law and order problem,” says Chhina.

On April 29, violence erupted in Patiala when two groups clashed during a local Shiv Sena-organized anti-Khalistan demonstration.

On Sunday morning, the CIA Patiala squad, led by Inspector Shaminder Singh, apprehended Barjinder Singh Parwana at Mohali airport.
