Amritsar: The Shiromani Gurdwara Prabhandak Committee (SGPC) president Avtar Singh Makker on Thursday (9 July) met Sikh political prisoner Prof. Devender Pal Singh Bhullar. SGPC chief said that the Sikh body would provide every possible legal help to Prof. Bhullar and demanded his permanent release from prison.
SGPC president was accompanied by Takht Keshgarh Sahib jathedar Giani Mal Singh. They first had a brief meeting with Bhullar’s wife Navneet Kaur and then met Prof. Bhullar.
Demanding the permanent release of Bhullar, Makkar said, “The SGPC has always fought for the cause of Sikh prisoners who have spent decades in jails. We welcome the move to shift both Prof. Bhullar and Gurdeep Singh Khera to Punjab. I strongly feel people like Prof. Bhullar must be released immediately.”
“I have come here because the SGPC was concerned about the issue and we are ready to provide all help. Whatever the family wants, we will provide. The SGPC is also ready to offer legal aid and can arrange the best of lawyers if the family wants”, he added.
After meeting Prof. Bhullar, Makkar said he seemed better but could not talk much.
