For Khalistani poster, Punjabi dhaba owner held in Bongaigaon

Guwahati: A roadside dhaba owner from Punjab, identified as Gurmukh Singh of Tarn Taran district, has been detained in Assam’s Bongaigaon district on suspicion of being a sympathizer of the Khalistani movement.
According to a Hindustan Times report, Superintendent of Police (SP) Mohan Lal Meena revealed on Monday that Singh was arrested due to the presence of posters depicting Khalistani ideologue Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and others. Which is located near Gerukabari checkpoint on the National Highway 27.
Additionally, Singh had a picture of slain rapper Sidhu Moose wala displayed in his establishment.
Meena said Singh is currently being questioned by the police, who are probing the posters found at the dhaba.
Singh claimed that the posters were given to him by truck drivers, but the SP stressed that Singh’s intentions could not be conclusively ascertained at this time.
Singh, who worked as a truck driver before the COVID-19 pandemic, opened the dhaba during the pandemic.
“We think he put up such posters in his dhaba to attract more truck drivers, most of whom are from Punjab. Otherwise, he would not have done such a stupid act publicly in front of his dhaba. Karta,” Meena was quoted as saying by HT.
