April 26, 2016 | By

Chandigarh: Sikh political prisoner, Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara has approached the Punjab and Haryana high court seeking clubbing of all pending cases against him in one state.

Bhai Jagtar Singh, who is presently lodged in the Tihar jail in Delhi, has recently submitted a petition in the Punjab and Haryana High court in which he said that he should be shifted to that state so that he might be tried and the cases decided expeditiously.

In his petition Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara has listed out 25-odd cases registered against him. Most of these cases related to the period of late nineties and the first decade of 2000.

The Sikh political prisoner has also sought a list of all criminal cases as he was not aware as to how many cases were pending against him.

“Most of the cases remain pending without meaningful proceedings, the non-trial is because the petitioner could not be regularly produced in courts concerned,” he has submitted seeking the high court’s intervention.

The high court has sought the response of Chandigarh, Punjab and Haryana by July 4.
