Lahore [Pakistan], July 10 (ANI): Pakistan's first Sikh police officer Gulab Singh has been manhandled and forcibly evicted out of his house along with his family allegedly by the officials of Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB).
It is pertinent to mention that the ETPB is the parent body of Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committ (PSGPC).
Singh in the video which is being widely circulated on the social media is seen crying foul over the behaviour being meted out to him and his family by the ETPB officials.
In the footage he alleged that he was thrashed, his turban was tossed and hair were untied, while he along with his wife and children were forced out of the house.
He also accused that PSGPC president Tara Singh was the main culprit behind the incident.
"I am being treated the way goons are treated. I have been ousted from my house and they have now locked my house. The concerned officials have done this to please a few people. They have specifically targeted me. You must have noticed that there is no turban on my head. They unravelled my turban and opened my hair", he said.
He also appealed to the Sikhs all across the globe to take note of the atrocities committed by Pakistan.
"I request you all to share this video and bring this to the notice of the world that how Sikhs in Pakistan are being treated," he added.
In a video footage, the ETBP officials can be seen standing out of Gulab Singh's house.
Reportedly, Gulab Singh had levelled serious charges of corruption on PSGPC chief Tara Singh and a few ETPB officers in 2016. (ANI)
