Amritpal Singh a few weeks back along with supporters attacked the Ajnala Police Station for the release of his close aid Lovepreet Singh Toofan. During this, 6 policemen were badly injured as it was alleged that they did not have enough weapons and equipments to fight such a huge crowd.

This led to the announcement of a peaceful protest by Amritpal Singh outside the concerned police station.
