Amritsar (April 12, 2013): In a statement sent to Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) the Dal Khalsa spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh has termed the dismissal of petition of Prof Devinderpal Singh Bhullar a death row convict, as shocking and disturbing for people of Punjab in general and Sikh community in particular.

He said, the decision was travesty of justice as Prof Bhullar is on death row since 18 years. Secondly he was given punishment on the basis of confessional statement taken by police officer under torture. Thirdly it was a split verdict as the then Chief Justice acquitted him. Fourthly, he was deported from German, where capital punishment is not given. He quoted Indian government giving a word to Italian government in the case of Italian marines facing murder charges in India.

He said in the wake of secretly hanging of Afzal Guru, the J&K chief minister took a jibe at Indian state and said in public that “the state is selective in the case of death convicts”. Ever since then the Sikhs were apprehending that the next target will be a Sikh. With today’s SC decision, our fears might come true, he said.
