Manjinder kang moves HC
Chandigarh October 29:
Apprehending threat to his life since the day he openly sided with ousted Akali Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal, SAD MLA from Beas Manjinder Singh Kang moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
His petition against the scaling down of his security cover will come up for hearing before Justice Jaswant Singh on Friday. Kang had earlier asked for paramilitary force security cover. He had claimed that he was receiving threatening calls from unidentified phone numbers ever since he lent support to Manpreet Badal.
Kang had claimed before the media that the state government withdrew more than half of the 50 security guards deployed with his family and a relative - SGPC member Jagir Singh. Kang had asserted that the Punjab Government would be responsible, if anything happened to his family.
