Lahore, May 17 (ANI): Gulab Singh, the only Sikh warden in traffic police in Lahore who had even put in his papers last month alleging misbehaviour by his colleagues, has once again complained of humiliation in public by his seniors.

Last evening he filed another application against an unidentified police officer, who came in plain clothes and asked for his gun. When Gulab Singh refused to hand over the gun, the man started abusing him in public.

Gulab Singh stated in his application that he was on duty when a man named Mumtaz Ahmed Jajja approached him and told him to hand over his gun. He further said that when he refused to give his gun to a man he did not know, over which Jajja abused him in public, reported the Daily Times.

According to him, senior police officials had ordered all the traffic wardens to surrender their guns, but he had sought a weeks time from them. The gun was too costly to be given away to a stranger, he said and added that the man was in plain clothes, for which he did not surrender the weapon.

Earlier last month, Gulab Singh had alleged that it was a routine affair that his colleagues misbehaved with him and made fun of him being a Sikh. He said that he was being discriminated against for not being a Muslim due to which his colleagues made fun of his religion. Singh often took his complaints to his seniors, but they did not take the matter seriously, because of which he was forced to resign. (ANI)
