A massive outrage took place after protesters swarmed the Red Fort on Republic Day 2021 and hoisted a religious flag during the farmers' tractor rally. Punjabi actor Deep Sidhu later on Tuesday, reportedly admitted that he was present during the incident.

As per latest information, Deep Sidhu switched off his mobile phone after absconding from the site. During the intervening night of January 26 and January 27, Sidhu's phone was switched off between 12 pm and 12:30 pm. The last location of the mobile phone is showing as Haryana.

It is being said that Sidhu turned off his mobile phone to avoid police. 

Deep Sidhu grabbed the headlines after his pictures and videos from the Red Fort violence surfaced on Twitter and other social media platforms. Sidhu also posted a video on Facebook to justify his actions and said, "We have only hoisted the Mahan Sahib flag on the Red Fort while exercising our democratic right to protest. In this kind of protest, people's anger flares up and you cannot blame one person for inciting the protesters." The Punjabi actor tried to defend himself by saying that the protesters did not remove the national flag from the flag pole at Red Fort.

He said that he had put up the 'Nishan Sahib' as a symbolic protest at the Red Fort. The 'Nishan Sahib' flag, a symbol of the Sikh religion, is seen at all Gurdwara complexes. In a video posted on Facebook, Sidhu said, "To symbolically register our protest against the new farm legislation, we put up 'Nishan Sahib' and a farmer flag and also raised the slogan of Kisan Mazdoor Ekta."

Deep Sidhu is a Punjabi actor, filmmaker, and activist who was born in 1984 to a Punjabi family in Muktsar, Punjab. Sidhu came into the limelight after he won the Kingfisher Model Hunt and later took part in Grasim Mr. India and became Grasim Mr Personality and Grasim Mr Talented.
