Other Criminal Activities

In 2016, Sandeep Singh of Damdami Taksal was attacked by a group of Sikhs led by Joga Singh Khalistani at Gurdwara Bhai Ram Singh, Vishwakarma Colony of Shimlapuri, in Ludhiana when Gurdial Singh, president of the management committee of the gurdwara, was honouring Sandeep Singh with a Siropa (a form of felicitation). The mob following Joga Singh destroyed his car and gave Sandeep Singh the title of a killer while protesting the ceremony and exclaimed,

Killers can’t be awarded with a siropa.”

Later, the police arrested the accused members of the attack, including Joga Singh Khalistani.
