Indian Army Ex. Sikh officer thrashed by extremists, called Pakistani

According to a TOI report, the Bangalore-based retired Army officer had approached the Akal Takht–the chief centre of religious authority of Sikhism–urging it to use its influence on the Karnataka government to give him justice in the case. “My son Harmeet Uppal was brutally assaulted and he suffered multiple facial fractures and a broken jaw. He had to undergo a 5-our surgery and has six plates in his mouth. He was also hit on the chest, head, back and limbs. My younger son, Harpreet Uppal, suffered multiple blunt injuries on head, chest, face, back and limbs,” Col RS Uppal (retd) wrote in a letter sent to the Akal Takht jathedar. He also alleged that they were called ‘Pakistani’.

His elder son Harmeet said his family had been receiving threats from people and had threatened them to sell their property and leave the city. He also alleged the miscreants had threatened to break the legs of his mother and outrage her modesty.
