New Delhi: 

Saravjit Singh - a Sikh 'warrior' or Nihang who has claimed responsibility for the gruesome murder of a Dalit labourer at a farmers protest site in Haryana's Singhu yesterday - has claimed "no regrets".

Singh was produced at a local court today following his surrender yesterday and sent to seven days' police custody; the authorities had argued for 14 days' saying Sarvjit had given them information on four other suspects and that they had to recover the murder weapons.

An earlier video - from before his surrender - of him tightly flanked by other Nihangs - at least two of whom still carried swords - and surrounded by reporters has emerged, in which one reporter asks: "Do you feel repentance?"

To this Singh looks disinterested, waves the question away and shakes his head, and replies "No".

The body of Lakhbir Singh, 35 years old and from Punjab's Tarn Taran district, was discovered early yesterday morning. It was found tied to a police barricade with the left hand and right foot cut off.

As news of the brutal and sickening murder spread, at least three videos were circulated, showing a large group of Nihangs, standing around his body as lay bleeding and in pain.

One video shows the group standing over him after his left hand was cut off. Another showed them filming his dying moments and a third showed him strung up by his feet like a slab of meat.

NDTV has not been able to independently verify any of these videos.

Also, reports circulating since yesterday morning claim that Lakhbir Singh was attacked for allegedly desecrating the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh's holy book.

Swaraj India chief Yogendra Yadav, who is part of the group leading the farmers' protests, had indicated an argument broke out at the protest site Thursday night over a question of desecration.

The Nihangs allegedly beat Lakhbir to death, cut off his limbs and tied him to the police barricade.

However, voices from Lakhbir's home village of Cheema Kurd have a different story to tell.

"He could not have done this; he was not that kind of a person. He was made to do this," Masa Singh said. Another, who requested anonymity out of fear of reprisal, stressed: "Lakhbir can't be involved in desecration", and a third, retired soldier Harbhajan Singh, said "... he must have been lured there."

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha, which is spearheading farmers' protests against the government's new laws, and members of which group are among the thousands camped out at Singhu, has unequivocally distanced itself from the murder and any connection with the Nihangs.

"... want to make it clear - the Nihang group (and) the deceased - have no relation with the Kisan Morcha," SKM said yesterday, adding that it abhorred sacrilege but nobody could take the law into their hands. The guilty must be punished, the farmers body said, and offered the police its support.

Haryana Chief Minister ML Khattar held a high-level meeting at his residence in Chandigarh to discuss the murder; Home Minister Anil Vij and the state's police chief were present.

No surprise there. Indian media is also painting this out to be a Dalit hate crime. 

We can pretty much know with certainty which two parts of that man were used to strike Maharaja. 

Let's see...left hand...and uh...right foot. Naughty naughty. 

And if this wasn't like Lahkbir, who turned him into a crash test dummy?

100 percent. I was reading about the guy and he was a drug addict whose wife and kids left him years ago.  We all know addicts do the dumbest stuff to get their next fix. However, what's interesting is that his sister stated that he used to talk on the phone with "higher ups." There is an outfit funding these events. 

Interesting. Sant Jairnail Singh Bhinderwale Shaheed Ji got people off afeem and they use it as a way to stoke violence and get some junkie wrecked.

    • I thought that strap was a gatra at first tbh
    • Back in the days, women of Panjab wore either a Suthan style trouser (which could be loose or tight), a Ghagra or a Tehmat/Dhoti (mainly west Panjab). They wore a Kurti, which was shorter than the modern Kameez and if you go a bit back, some could be seen wearing a Choli too. Suthan style trousers eventually evolved into the modern salwar during the 1900s.  It would be nice to see women reviving these dresses again.  Typical dress of a Panjabi women from Amritsar 1875.   The Suthan looked like this. These photos range from the the 1870s to early 1900s.     The Ghagra was worn over trousers when heading outside, mainly by Sikh and Hindu women.  The Dhoti or Tehmat was mainly worn by Muslim Panjabi women from a certain area of west Panjab as Sikh women preferred a Ghagra. 
    • Paper seems glossy. And it seems in great condition for something so puratan.  I don't think back home are too hot on verification. More details would be great, but I'm not holding my breath.
    • Nah, he was jutt innit. Have to be 'bruin' innit. lol!  Plus, why miss a chance to prance around like a bandher! Who in their right mind would do that? You're not making sense.    Plus it was a low risk move in any case. Even if she blanked him, he could always go back to bhund maaring his synchronised bhangra 'brothers'.     
    • First, It is all in the hukam of Sri Akal Purakh sahib. Sikhs are never afraid of the numbers (there were days, where we were left just in thousands). Have we been focused on numbers, whole world would be amritdhari by now. So, that is not enough reason to allow multi-religious wedding where other faith teaching such as kafir ideology, my god is superior of all etc..  Second, if they are not sikh religious then why not get married in a church or court house? What tomorrow, you are going to raise the point that we are small in numbers and we may offend someone, so why not we simple remove the rule of covering head in hazzori of guru sahib. Where it will end?
