Faridkot: As per information available with the Sikh Siyasat News (SSN), Panjgarain Khurd Sikh brothers Rupinder Singh and Jaswinder Singh were unconditionally released from Faridkot jail late this evening after they were discharged in Bargari beadbi case.
Duo, who were framed in a case related to beadbi of Guru Granth Sahib at Bargari village in Faridkot district, were received by Sikh sangat and Sikh pracharaks outside the Faridkot jail.
Bhai Panthpreet Singh, Bhai Avtar Singh Sadhanwala, Bhai Harjinder Singh Majhi, Daler Singh Doad and Bhai Gurdev Singh Mudaki were also present outside Faridkot jail when the brothers were released from jail.
Advocate Shiv Kartar Singh Sekhon, council for Rupinder Singh and Jaswinder Singh, told Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) that the Punjab police moved a plea under section 169 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) admitting that the police had not proof against Rupinder Singh and Jaswinder Singh in this case, so they should be released from the custody. On being asked that if the case discharged against Rupinder Singh and Jaswinder Singh, Advocate Shiv Kartar Singh said that the term discharge can not used technically as no chargesheet was filed by the police against Rupinder Singh and Jaswinder Singh. However, he continued, the case is over against Rupinder Singh and Jaswinder Singh.
It may be recalled that under immense pressure from the Sikh sangat to find out culprits of beadbi of Guru Granth Sahib at Bargari village, the police framed Rupinder Singh and Jaswinder Singh in this case.
The police has been alleging Rupinder and Jaswinder Singh’s involvement in the Bargari incident. The police claimed they had phone transcripts to support the claim that duo received money from Dubai and Australia.
The police theory, however, came under attack from several quarters, especially Sikh leaders and residents of Panjgarayin village.
Moreover, callers from Dubai and Australia came forward to clarify that the money was sent for treatment of injured Rupinder Singh.
The police had failed to secure any evidence against them.
