THE MOHALI police has provided an armed guard to the family of slain lawyer and national-level shooter Sukhmanpreet Singh Sidhu after the family apprehended threat to their lives. The security measure has been taken after a man was seen throwing stones at Sippy’s house.
The family has also installed more CCTV cameras outside their residence in Phase 3B2.
According to the police, an armed guard was deputed outside Sippy’s residence a few days ago after the man was caught on CCTV camera throwing stones at the house. Sippy’s younger brother Jippy Sidhu also posted a comment on the social networking site alleging that he and his mother faced threat from the family of the Punjab and Haryana High Court judge whose daughter had been questioned in connection with the murder case.
Jippy also mentioned the names of the High Court judge, her husband and her daughter, and said that if anything happened to them, the trio would be responsible for it. Jippy also posted that he and his mother Deepinder Kaur had been living under constant threat to their lives since they had named the judge’s daughter.
Speaking to Chandigarh Newsline, Jippy said that they told the Mohali as well as Chandigarh police about the incidents in which a man was seen throwing stones towards their residence. “We have been provided with security as we were scared. I have waged a war against the judge’s family on social networking sites. I have posted on Facebook about it, we have already demanded the transfer of the judge as we are doubtful that she is influencing the investigation proceedings,” said Jippy.
The family will hold a candlelight march on December 13 at Sector 27 park where Sippy was murdered on September 20. The march will simultaneously be carried out in America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
