The Akal Takht ostracized Parkash’s father, who also served as an SGPC member, purportedly showing him in an objectionable position with a woman. This could be visible in a video and had circulated on social media in 2017. He has been seeking pardon over the past week, with his parents also applying to the Takht.
Gurdaspur SSP Dr. Nanak Singh reported they had a tip-off. Some youngsters were coming to supply heroin to Rajesh Kumar at his house in Dhariwal town.
The team conducted a raid at the house where they found five persons with heroin. Apart from Parkash and Kumar, the other accused are Aditya Mahajan, Kunal, and Sudhir Singh, who belong to Dhariwal.
The SSP said that,
“On checking, 8gm heroin was recovered from Mahajan, while 2.5gm heroin and 2gm heroin was recovered from Kunal and Sudhir, respectively. The other two were consuming heroin. A case has been registered against all these accused under relevant sections of the NDPS. The accused are being quizzed about their network of drug trade”
