It is notable that thousands Sikhs were killed in a series of planned massacres throughout India. The massacres were planned by high ups in the Indian administration and was carried by organized killer gangs in complicity and active participation of police and local administration. The Indian state patronized and rewarded the culprits of the Sikh genocide 1984 and victims were left to perish in wait for justice.

While talking to Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) over phone Bibi Nirpreet Kaur said that Indian state was trying to snub the voices for justice with money.
