Birmingham: Various Sikh organizations of England have decided to raise the issue of extra-judicial killings of Sikhs in Punjab before the United Nations. The decision came in wake of ‘admission’ to such killings by a former Indian Army officer.
Notably, a retired Indian Army man and so-termed ‘security expert’ Col. Anil Kaul had admitted to mass level extra-judicial killings of civilians in Punjab during KPS Gill’s tenure on Rajya Sabha TV few days back. During a debate on Rajya Sabha TV, a state-run TV channel in India, on September 20, 2016 Col. (Retd.) Anil Kaul had stated that: ‘As KPS Gill executed relatives of terrorists (militants) in Punjab and it brought and end to the terrorism (movement) there and similar course should be adopted in Kashmir also’ [words in brackets are from SSN].
