Sikh delegation meets minority panel chief, seeks launch of ‘Bandi Singhs’
New Delhi, October 26
Members of the Political Sikh Prisoners Rihai Morcha (Delhi) and the Akali Dal (United) met Nationwide Fee for Minorities chairman Iqbal Singh Lalpura on Wednesday, searching for the discharge of Sikh “political prisoners”.
Within the one-hour assembly, there was a dialogue on “obstacles” within the launch of those Sikhs. Two separate memorandums have been submitted to Lalpura. Additionally, a request was made to instruct all state governments to impose the Illegal Actions (Prevention) Act on those that “sabotage” Guru Granth Sahib.
The delegation demanded that Surat Singh Khalsa, who has been “illegally positioned below home arrest” by the Punjab Police for the previous seven years, be launched forthwith. It drew Lalpura’s consideration to how the “sentence evaluation board” of the Authorities of Delhi had not met for the previous seven months. Throughout its final assembly in March 2022, the board had delay a choice relating to the Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar case, the delegation stated.
