As the Haryana administration, wary of repercussions, proceeded with caution, The Indian Express quoted unspecified sources saying the Nihangs had been persuaded to hand the accused over, as police did not want to provoke a reaction by making a search and arrest.

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha that has been spearheading the farm protests also weighed in to ensure Sarabjit’s arrest, in an effort to ensure that things didn’t get out of hand, the newspaper reported.

Late on Saturday night, police detained two more Nihang Sikhs from the Singhu-Kundli protest site, and are questioning them. In a video clip, Nihang leaders claimed the men were going to 'surrender' to the police.
