Anticipatory bail plea of Gurdas Maan rejected/ Facebook

Punjabi singer Gurdas Maan on Tuesday was denied anticipatory bail in the case of objectionable remarks made during a religious fair at Dera Baba Murad Shah in Nakodar last month. Gurdas Maan had described Ladi Shah, who was the ruler of the dera, as descendant of third Sikh Guru Amar Das.Following his remarks, Sikh organisations, including the Guru Granth Sahib Satkar Committee, filed a case against him for hurting the religious sentiments of the community.

Subsequently, Gurdas Maan had filed an anticipatory bail petition in the District and Sessions Court. During the hearing, advocates of Sikh organisations Parminder Singh Dhingra and Ravinder Singh said Mann’s words had hurt the religious sentiments of the community. His remarks caused great resentment among the Sikh community. If Mann stays outside, it could increase people’s wrath, so he should not be given bail.

While Gurdas Maan himself did not appear in the court, his lawyer filed a bail application.

A case under Section 295-A of the IPC has been registered against Maan at the Nakodar police station.
