New Delhi: Adistrict court in Haryana's Sonipat on Sunday remanded three people from the Nihang community to six-day police custody in connection with the Singhu border killing case.

The accused -- Narayan Singh, Bhagwant Singh and Govind Preet -- were produced before the court of junior Divisional Judge Kimmi Singla. The police had sought 14 days custody of all three accused, stating that they mentioned in their disclosure statement that they can only identify the co-accused by face and not name.

The three accused, along with another accused Sarabjit Singh, will be taken to Punjab by Haryana Police for the identification of other accused. Sarabjit Singh is already remanded to seven days in police custody.

The Haryana Police told the court that the murder weapon and blood-stained clothes haven’t been recovered yet for which they will have to take the accused to the crime spot. Additionally, the police had also suggested that they might have to travel to Punjab to nab other accused.

On Saturday evening, Narayan Singh surrendered in Amritsar. Two more Nihangs, Govind Preet and Bhagwant Singh, surrendered in Kundli. Haryana Police took them in for questioning after which they were formally arrested.


The body of a 35-year-old Dalit man, named Lakhbir Singh, was found in a mutilated condition on Friday at Delhi's Singhu border, which is the site of the ongoing protest against the Centre's three farm laws.

A group of Nihang Sikhs, Nirvair Khalsa-Udna Dal, admitted to killing the man and said he was killed for allegedly committing 'sacrilege'.
