Various Sikh organisations Saturday protested against alleged “hooliganism” and blocking of Chandigarh-Nawanshahr by Shiv Sena activists following the death of Hindu Shiv Sena president Abhishek Batta in a road accident day before.
Leaders of these organisations also met the SSP, Nawanshahr and submitted a memorandum to him seeking action against Sena activists.

They had earlier gathered at a local gurdwara and flayed the Sainiks for beating up a Mohali-based man who was making the video of the protest. They said the Sainiks should be booked under sections 295 A and 120 (B) of the IPC.
They also demanded that the protesters be booked for blocking the national way. Effigies of Shiv Sainiks were also burnt in Jalandhar.
