The police have failed to track down the “missing” Sidhu, a Punjabi actor turned activist, and his associates. Sidhu is accused of inciting farmers to deviate from their assigned route and storm the Red Fort.

Farmers leaders have alleged sabotage and accused Sidhu of being a “government agent” responsible for the unprecedented violence and trying to defame their protest against the new farm laws.

The police has so far filed 44 cases and arrested 122 people.

Several farmer union leaders have also been named in the cases.

“Our three teams are in Punjab to locate Sidhu and his associates, but they have not been able to track down them,” an officer said.
