A Patiala-based lawyer has claimed that some pro-Khalistani elements verbally abused Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann's daughter Seerat Kaur Mann in the United States. The lawyer said in a Facebook post that those demanding Khalistan and abusing "children" are a blot on Sikhism.
The lawyer told IE that Mann's ex-wife Inderpreet spoke to him over phone and said Seerat received threat calls from Khalistan supporters. He said the woman said they used derogatory words. He said that a resolution has been passed in a US place of worship asking Khalistan supporters to gherao both Mann's children.
This comes amid a manhunt launched by the Punjab Police to nab Amritpal Singh, the radical preacher who stormed a police station in Punjab in order to secure the release of a kidnapping accused.
There has been no independent confirmation from the family.
