It may be recalled here that that the Indian state has confined Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara in Delhi’s Tihar Jail and he is not being presented in the courts in Punjab. Actually Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara has no pending case in Delhi where as he has some pending cases in Punjab and the authorities cite “security reasons” for not presenting him in the Punjab courts.
