“We have announced ?1 lakh against Sidhu, Jugraj and two others because they appear to be the key conspirators. Raids have been conducted at many places in Punjab and other states, but the suspects are absconding. The family members of some of them are also untraceable,” said a police officer on Wednesday.
Sidhu has led the protesters to the Red Fort. The protesters had clashed with security personnel and hoisted a religious flag on the Red Fort.
