Sandeep Singh visits Punjabi Lane, in Shillong, Meghalaya where Sikhs are being pushed out of their homes in a forced relocation.

Dalit Sikhs have called the Lane home for over 150 years. However, the Meghalaya government and the Shillong Municipal Board have signed a contentious agreement with the Syiem of Mylliem to transfer the land to the state. Sandeep speaks with locals about what is happening and how they plan to fight back.
