Amritsar, Punjab (December 27, 2013): The persistent efforts of Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa culminated today in the parole of Bhai Lakhwinder Singh and Shamsher Singh. They were released from Chandigarh Model Jail, Burail in the late evening on parole of 28 days.
Bhai Lakhwinder Singh and Shamsher Singh’s arrest dates back to 1995. They were sentenced to imprisonment for life for their involvement in assassination of then Punjab CM Beant Singh.
They have already undergone more than 18 years imprisonment. Their jail conduct was good and they were never released since the time of their arrest.
It is pertinent to note that the court that sentenced Bhai Lakhwinder Singh, Shamsher Singh and Gurmeet Singh (released on parole on Dec. 25) besides other persons involved in Beant Singh’s assassination had specifically make following note in it’s judgement:-
“1642. Above all, there is also nothing on the file to say that these convicts were previous offenders or involved in any other criminal activities and as such there is no possibility of their reformation and rehabilitation. On the contrary, their act and conduct coupled with their roles forces this court to note that atleast these three convicts can be reformed and rehabilitated as a responsible citizen of India” (State v. Gurmeet Singh etc.; Sessions case no. 2-A of 1995).
Meanwhile Sikh Siaysat News (SSN) sources from Amritsar revealed that Bhai Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa, who was staying at Mata Ganga Ji Niwas, has left for Akal Takht Sahib to offer an ardas. He may announce to end his hunger strike there. More details were awaited at the time of writing this news.
