He appealed to Sikh Sangat to join the gathering for the justice of sacrilege. He said on that occasion, Deep Sidhu will also be remembered.
Mann also demanded from the UNO to probe into Deep Sidhu’s death case. He said the Indian agencies cannot deliver justice to Deep Sidhu’s family and only UNO can investigate the matter fairly.
