At least 15 people were injured on Wednesday, including cops, when Sikhs from various organisations clashed with police over an alleged incident of sacrilege in Faridkot.
Police used batons and fired in the air to quell the protests in which activists of various Sikh organisations were injured besides policemen. The situation is tense but under control in the district and a heavy police force has been deployed to maintain law and order.
Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his deputy Sukhbir Singh Badal have appealed to the people to maintain peace. Badal said the guilty would not be spared.
