New Delhi [India], February 14 (ANI): Delhi Police has announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh for information leading to the arrest of Lakhbir Singh alias Lakha Sidhana, who is wanted for his involvement in the Republic Day violence in the national capital.
Various teams of the Delhi Police Crime Branch and Special Cell are conducting search operations in Punjab, Haryana, and Delhi-NCR.
Three more people were arrested on Saturday in connection with the violence that took place during the farmers’ tractor rally in Delhi’s Burari area on January 26, police said. The accused have been identified as Sukhmeet Singh (35), Gundeep Singh (33) and Harvinder Singh (32).
The Delhi Police Special Cell on Tuesday had also arrested Iqbal Singh from Hoshiarpur in Punjab. He was produced in Tis Hazari court on February 10. He was an accused in the January 26 Delhi violence case and has been sent to seven-day police custody by a local court.
The police also said that Iqbal Singh was one of the main conspirators of the Republic Day violence. Singh told the court that he did not go to Red Fort to cause violence and whatever he did or said was in the “heat of the moment”.
Iqbal’s arrest comes hours after the Delhi Police cell arrested Punjabi actor-turned-activist Deep Sidhu “for inciting farmers during the tractor rally on Republic Day at Red Fort and other areas.”
So far, a total of 14 people have been arrested in connection with the violence.
The Intelligence Bureau (IB) will interrogate Sidhu on Wednesday, who has also been sent to seven-day police custody for his alleged role in the violence that took place at the Red Fort and other parts of the national capital on Republic Day, according to Delhi Police sources.
On Republic Day, protesting farmers did not follow the prearranged route and broke barricades to enter Delhi, clashed with police, and vandalised property in several parts of the national capital during the farmers’ tractor rally. They also entered the Red Fort and unfurled their flags from its ramparts.
Farmers have been protesting at the different borders of the national capital since November 26 last year against the three newly enacted farm laws: Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.

Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], February 28 (ANI): Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, who hails from a village in Jammu and Kashmir and served three years as Chief Minister, drew parallels between himself and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, stating that he has not forgotten his roots and proudly calls himself a “chaiwala” as well as he does not hide his true self.
Speaking at a public event in Jammu, Ghulam Nabi said, “I like a lot of things about many leaders. I am from the village and feel proud… Even our Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) hails from the village and used to sell tea. We are political rivals but I appreciate that he does not hide his true self.”
“I have travelled the whole world. I have stayed in 5-star and 7-star hotels. But the scent of the people who belong to my village is unmatched,” the Congress leader said after he was felicitated with the ‘Sher-e-Gurjar award’ by Gurjar Desh Charitable Trust.
Earlier this month, Azad, who served as Leader of Opposition (LoP) in Rajya Sabha, retired from the House. An emotional Prime Minister Modi bid adieu to him by recalling his long association with the senior leader.
“The person who will replace Ghulam Nabi ji (as Leader of Opposition) will have difficulty matching his work because he was not only concerned about his party but also about the country and the House,” PM Modi had said.
On Saturday, the groups of 23 dissenting leaders of Congress, including Azad, who has been calling for leadership and organisational change in the Congress, had said the party “getting weaker” and are raising their voice for the betterment of the party.

Tirunelveli (Tamil Nadu) [India], February 28 (ANI): In a renewed attack on the Centre, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said that the Government of India has turned noble professions like farming, education and healthcare into financial commodities.
During an interaction titled ‘Educators Meet’ at Tirunelveli’s St Xavier College, Gandhi said, “I personally do not believe that education is a financial commodity. I believe that education should be available to everyone.”
Gandhi, who is touring Tamil Nadu for the second day as part of his campaign for the April 6 assembly polls, hit out at the National Democratic Alliance (NDA)-led union government and said, “It is duty of a nation to give education and healthcare to its people. What is happening here is that everything is being seen as a financial commodity,” he remarked.
“Agriculture is being seen as a financial commodity, education is being seen as a financial commodity, healthcare is being seen as a financial commodity. Basically, if you have money, you can get anything. If you do not have money, you get nothing,” the Congress leader said.
Gandhi also took to Twitter to slam the Central government.
“GOI has turned noble professions like farming, education & healthcare into financial commodities for the benefit of a few cronies. We’re fighting this without any anger, hatred or violence. And non-violence always wins,” he tweeted.
This comes ahead of the 234-member Tamil Nadu assembly elections will be held in a single phase on April 6 and the counting of votes will take place on May 2.
