Deep Sidhu has been absconding since the incident. The NIA has issued summons to him. However, he posted on Facebook and said, “We hoisted the flag of Nissan Sahib at the Red Fort under our democratic right to demonstrate, and the Indian flag was not removed.”
Activist Yogendra Yadav also said that Gangster turned leader Lakha Sidhana and Deep Sidhu, again tried to provoke farmers at the Singhu border last night.
Who is Deep Sidhu?
Deep Sidhu was born in 1984 in the Muktsar district of Punjab. Sidhu studied law, after passing from school. He was also a member of the bar a few days before winning the Kingfisher Model Hunt Award.
Deep Sidhu’s first Punjabi film ‘Ramta Jogi’ was released in 2015. However, he got his fame in 2018 from the film Jora Das Numbaria, in which he played the role of a gangster.
It is to be noted that in 2019, actor Sunny Deol had also placed Deep Sidhu in his election campaign team when he contested the Lok Sabha elections from Gurdaspur. However, after the violent incident at the Red Fort, Sunny Deol said in a tweet, “I or my family have nothing to do with Deep Sidhu.”
