There is not any obstacle in their release from jails but political decision awaits there release.
We urge the govt of Punjab to make the release of these three Sikhs Gurmeet Singh, Shamsher Singh and Lakhwinder singh assured as they they are residents of Punjab and all the technical problems may be solved at earliest to pave way for their safe release. The prisoner Lal Singh—his release can be made possible by approaching the Lieutinent Governor of Chandigarh as he is lodged in a jail in Punjab.
Gurdeep Singh is a resident of Punjab so govt. of Punjab can play a pivot role in his safe release. The remaining prisoner Wariyam singh, the UP govt. can be contacted for his safe release.
