AISSF president Karnail Singh Peermohammad said that bid to reinstated dismissed inspector Gurmeet Pinky as Head Constable despite being a murder convict highlights the fact of “Police rule” in Punjab.

Expressing deep concern over current situation of ‘police rule’ in Punjab, AISSF president said that the Punjab Government has adopted biased approach by recommending premature release of human rights abuser like Gurmeet Pinky.

On the contrary the Badal Government has turned blind eye to 130 days long ongoing hunger strike by Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa, who is demanding release of Sikh political prisoners, said Karnail Singh Peer Mohammad. “Biased approach of the Badal government has once again exposed it’s anti-Sikh face”, he added.

It may be recalled that in January 2001 Gurmeet Pinky gunned down a Ludhiana youth named Avtar Singh Gola over a petty issue. Avtar Singh was the only son of his parents. Gurmeet Pinky was sentenced to life imprisonment in this case. However, he was released by the state government secretly on May 24, 2014. The issue of his premature release had reached the Punjab and Haryana high court, but nothing has yielded out till date.

Gurmeet Pinky also face acquisition of torturing and killing innocent Sikh youth including women, but he did not face any charges due to political patronage and state’s (undeclared) policy of impunity for human rights abusers in Punjab.
