Four unidentified motorcycle-borne youths shot dead a Dera Sacha Sauda follower after firing five bullets at him near village Chukerian in Mansa district today.

A special investigation team (SIT) has been constituted to enquire into the case.

According to information available, the Dera follower, Lili Kumar (42), of village Alampur Mandra (Mansa), was on his way back home after appearing in a criminal case at the sessions court.

Intercepting his motorcycle near village Chukerian, four unidentified youths shot five bullets at him and fled.

An eyewitness to the incident immediately informed the police. He was rushed to the Civil Hospital in Mansa, where doctors declared him brought dead.

Till late in the evening, Dera followers did not give any statement to the police, for which police was waiting to get the postmortem conducted.

Sources informed that the deceased was a member of the district committee of the Dera Sacha Sauda. During a Dera-Sikh incident in the past, a mob had set his house on fire.

About his court appearance, sources informed that in September 2007, Lili Kumar was an accused in a cross case of attempt to murder, which was registered after violence took place between Dera followers and Sikhs over holding Naam Charcha, the religious discourse of the Dera Sacha Sauda.

The deceased is survived by his wife and three children. He was posted as patwari in canal department, at Khudi Kalan village in Barnala. He was also said to be the kin of a Congress leader of Bareta town.

Confirming the facts, SSP Mansa Manminder Singh said, "We are ready to register a case but the Dera followers are not coming forward to lodge the complaint as they are firm about breaking their silence only after taking a collective decision, for which they are holding a meeting." "Meanwhile, we have constituted the SIT comprising the SP (D), DSP, in-charge CIA staff and the SHO, Sadar police station, to investigate the case in depth. Till now, no evidence of personal enmity has come to light."

FINALLY is all i can say, youth of Punjab are waking up. I know many will say why kill etc. But Deras have killed many gursikhs, so it is just justice, hopefully dera will get the message that they wont be tolerated and it is time for them to finish. Hopefully the next stage for creating Khalistan has started....

Dera Sirsa follower who attacked Sikhs shot dead

WSN Network

MANSA: Tensions marred Punjab again as a Dera Sauda activist, accused of involvement in anti-Sikh clashes, was on Tuesday shot dead by unidentified assailants near Chakerian village, 8 km from here. Lilli Kumar was attacked when he was returning to his village Alampur Mandran on a motorcycle after appearing in the court of District and Sessions Judge at Mansa in connection with a criminal case registered against him after a Dera- Sikh clash in September 2007.

Four motorcycle-borne assailants pumped several bullets into Lilli near Chakerian Chowk around 3 pm. The body was taken to Mansa Civil Hospital,where hundreds of Dera followers started gathering, including the 25-member core committee of Dera. Police were deployed in strength around the hospital. SSP Manminder Singh visited the hospital as well as the murder site.

He said a case had been registered and a Special Investigation Team, headed by SP (Detective) Sukhpal Singh, constituted to investigate the crime. Lilli Kumar, a patwari, had been booked by the Mansa police for alleged involvement in initiating a violent clash at Alampur Mandran village on September 3, 2007.

He had organised a naam charcha (religious discourse) at his house in the village despite objections. As Sikhs of the area arrived to stop the function, Lilli Kumar allegedly threw acid on them. A case under Sections 307, 148, 149 and 324 of the IPC was then registered against him and others at Boha police station. Fourteen persons had been injured in the clash that followed. A large number of followers of the dera have been repeatedly involved in attacks against the Sikhs because of the community’s objections to activities of the dera head who is already a rape and murder accused in a case being investigated by the CBI. The dera head had blatantly tried to imitate the Sikh gurus and has refused to apologise, rather making a mockery of such demands with half-apologies.
