Scores of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) activists held a demonstration against Sirsa police. They were accusing the police of sheltering those responsible for siphoning-off subsidised seed of the Haryana Seed Development Corporation (HSDC) even after 40 days of the registration of an FIR against them.
Within hours of the demonstration, the police announced the arrest of Om Pal Singh Panwar, former manager of the HSDC, while it said Sunil Chawla, a trader, the beneficiary of the seed scam, was still at large.
The activists assembled at Town Park here and marched towards Mini-Secretariat to handover a memorandum addressed to the Chief Minister to the authorities.
The activists handed over a copy of the memorandum to City Magistrate Prem Chand Gangle and demanded that SSP Saurabh Singh accepts their memorandum. When Additional SP Rajender Meena went up to them to accept the memorandum but they refused.
In the end Saurabh Singh received the memorandum from the agitators.
