CHANDIGARH, July 3: Advising caution and restraint, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Capt Amarinder Singh today sought an independent and credible probe into the allegations, of masterminding the desecration of holy Quran, against the Aam Aadmi Party MLA Naresh Yadav.
“Since the needle of suspicion now points towards the both, the Akali-BJP as well as the AAP, it is important that there is a credible probe to find out the actual truth”, he said in a statement issued here today.
“Given the sensitivity of the matter we need to exercise utmost restraint and caution”, Capt Amarinder warned, while adding, at the same time no guilty should be allowed to go scot-free. He said, it was a clear act of provocation done deliberately to hurt the sentiments of a particular community for vested interests.
The PCC president hoped that the AAP MLA Naresh Yadav, who was publicly named by one of the accused, will cooperate with the investigations. “In order to reach to the root of the matter, it needs to be investigated by an independent agency whose credentials are above board”, he said, while adding, “since the needle of suspicion points at both the SAD-BJP and the AAP, it is important that the probe conducted should be above board and acceptable to all”.
