Bains’s supporters said prayers would continue in the coming days as well.

Bail applications for the release of all supporters and both arrested Bains brothers will be filed on Monday morning in the district courts, said Karamjeet Singh Bains, brother of the two MLAs. Another of their brothers, Paramjeet Bains, said, “It is surprising that the police realised about the attempt to murder charges a day after lodging an FIR under the Mining Act. We are fighting for the common man who is getting sand for Rs 6,000 per trolley while illegal mining is being done at hundreds of sites in Punjab for free.”


They added that “this shows that the government is party to the mafia. The government is arresting elected representatives and putting them behind bars by framing them falsely.”
