Jalandhar: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday said that whosoever was behind the killing of Brig Jagdish Gagneja (retd), they must have been nurturing an evil agenda.
“Brig Gagneja was an honest man, a senior RSS leader and Sangh ‘Padadhikari’ and whosoever was behind the killing of the Sangh leader must be nurturing an evil agenda against him,” he added.
But, the Haryana CM came to the defence of ‘Punjab BJP’ and said that until the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) finds strong evidence in the killing of RSS leader Brigadier Jagdish Gagneja (retd), it was difficult to comment on the matter. It may be mentioned here that the Haryana state BJP is anti SAD-BJP alliance in Punjab.
Khattar also said that Brig Gagneja’s sacrifice would not go in vain in Punjab. “Our RSS leader’s sacrifice would continue to guide the society. Brig Gagneja’s sacrifice in Punjab would defeat the evil mindset of such people, who hatched his killing. The unity of Punjab would not be defeated by such anti-social elements,” he said.
The Haryana CM shared these thoughts after offering condolences to the family of slain RSS leader Brig Gagneja at the deceased leader’s residence in Jalandhar on Monday.
Ensuring security, police put up check-post outside residence
Jalandhar: The Jalandhar Commissionerate Police has put up a check-post outside the residence of slain Punjab RSS leader Brigadier Jagdish Gagneja (retd), hence ensuring 24X7 security to the family. The check-post has been stationed opposite the house of Brig Gagneja, where a heavy posse of police was deployed in the area. Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Harjit Singh said that the check post was stationed to ensure round the clock security. “This was part of security measure that the check-post was put up,” he said. Sources maintained that post the attack on Gagneja and the subsequent killing, the police was keeping a hawk’s eye on any suspicious movement in the area and thwart any untoward incident. Meanwhile, an additional heavy posse of police was stationed outside the house of Brig Gagneja, as VIPs have been reaching out to the family to offer condolences.
A close family member of Brig Gagneja said, “The CBI sleuths were constantly in touch with us. CBI officials have started conducting the probe and we are sure that the premier investigating agency would nab the culprits behind the killing of Brig Gagneja quickly.”
