Watch: Two Madhya Pradesh cops drag Sikh by hair, suspended

Two police personnel were suspended on dragging a sikh by hair in Madhya Pradesh. The suspended cops included an assistant sub-inspector and a head constable. Video of the incident has gone viral on social media. In the video clip, a Sikh is seen being pushed around, dragged by his hair by a cop. Another sikh is being seen requesting cops not to beat his companion. The incident, which took place in full public view, was shot in a 50-second video. It reportedly happened on Thursday at Palsud in Barwani district during a checking of vehicles by the two cops. The sikh, identified as Prem Singh, is a resident of Palsud town. Prem Singh is also said to be a granthi at the local Gurdwara. Granthi is caretaker of a gurdwara and reader of Guru Granth Sahib, the central religious scripture of Sikhism. The incident sparked a nationwide outrage among members of Sikh community. Congress leaders Kamal Nath and Narendra Saluja tweeted the video and criticised police. Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal took to Twitter to condemn the incident.
