Harnek Singh was attacked after he supported the new farm laws passed by the Indian Union Government and condemned the supposed farmers opposing the laws on December 23.

Harnek Singh suffered serious wounds in the attack and was yet to fully recover. Harnek narrated his pain and agony to the NZ Herald after the incident. Harnek was discharged from hospital after he showed promising signs of recovery at Middlemore Hospital after spending three weeks and undergoing several surgeries in an intensive care unit with hundreds of stitches from head to torso.

Harnek Singh had criticized the farmers protesting against the new farm laws on his radio show and YouTube channel, where he had also appealed to farmers to withdraw their protest. This could be a reason behind the grisly attack on Harnek.
