#Day47: Akali Dal Puts J&K Govt on Notice, Seeks ‘Justice’ For Slain Jammu Sikh Youth



Youth Akali Dal AmritsarA delegation of Youth Akali Dal Amritsar led by S Papalpreet Singh Tuesday handed over a memorandum to the Additional Divisional Commissioner of Jammu seeking “justice” for the slain Sikh youth in Jammu province.

Addressed to the Chief Minister of J&K, the memorandum has been written by President of Shiromani Akali Dal Amritsar S Simranjit Singh Mann.

Party President S Simranjit Singh Mann has said that the J&K state “did nothing” to punish the cops responsible for the killing of an innocent Sikh youth Bhai Jashjeet Singh of Jammu.

“Instead of punishing the SSP responsible for opening unprovoked firing on protesting Sikh youths, the state has promoted him to the rank of DIG,” the memorandum reads.

Notably, Bhai Jashjeet Singh Jammu attained was killed on June 4, 2015 in an “unprovoked firing” opened by the Jammu police on Sikh youths protesting against the tearing of posters containing Sikh leader Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale.

Talking about the massacre of 43 Sikhs in village Chittisinghpura of J&K territory, S Simranjit Singh Mann said, “the massacre has not been probed yet even after passage of 16 years. It was well established fact that the Indian Army itself had massacred Sikhs.”

S Gurdev Singh (President of SADA from Jammu), S Jaspal Singh Mangal (Ex-President), S Ram Singh (Secretary), S Navdeep Singh Amritsar (Youth Secretary), S Mankamal Singh Bandhurakhiya, S Gursharan Singh Sohal, S Gurjap Singh etc were also present on this occasion.
