Amritsar: Akal Takhat Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh, yesterday, met Sikh political prisoners Professor Devender Pal Singh Bhullar at Guru Nanak Hospital in Amritsar. Giani Gurbachan Singh was accompanied by SGPC’s executive committee member Rajinder Singh Mehta and Sikh Students Federation (Mehta faction) President Paramjeet Singh Khalsa.
Giani Gurbachan Singh reportedly endowed “Siropao” to Prof. Devender Pal Singh Bhullar and his wife Bibi Navneet Kaur.
Giani Gurbachan Singh also held separate meeting Bibi Navneet Kaur and discussed details of Prof. Devender Pal Singh Bhullar’s case. He said that politicians should refrain from engaging into politics over the shifting of Prof. Bhullar from Tihar Jail (Delhi) to Central Jail in Amritsar.
On parole for Prof. Bhullar, Akal Takhat Jathedar said that it was for his family to apply for parole on his behalf. He also raised concerns about other Sikh political prisoners languishing in Indian prisons even after serving minimum mandatory terms of their sentences. He said that such Sikh prisoners have been denied premature release in the past. Double standards of law must come to an end and eligible Sikh prisoners should be allowed to avail premature release, he added.
About his meeting with Bhullar, he said his health was improving and the doctors were looking after him well.
