Both former Punjab Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal and his son and former deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal will appear before the SIT, probing the 2015 police firings at Behbal Kalan and Kotkapura in Faridkot at mobs protesting the state-wide sacrilege incidents, the Akali Dal said Monday.

"SAD patron Parkash Singh Badal and party chief Sukhbir Singh Badal will cooperate (with the SIT) so that the truth (behind sacrilege incidents) comes out,' SAD leader and former Finance Minister Parminder Singh Dhindsa told media here.

The decision on appearance of the two Badals before the SIT was taken Sunday by the party's core committee. "We expect that the SIT will conduct a fair probe into the matter,' said Dhindsa. The Special Investigation Team had issued summonses to the two Badals and Bollywod actor Akshay Kumar on Sunday.

The Badals decided to join the investigation amid their party's consistent demand for probe into the sacrilege incidents by a sitting Supreme Court judge.
