Today, Bhai Pal Singh, Makhan Singh and Gurmukh Singh, appeared before a Sessions Court Judge in Amritsar. Also present were their legal team, Messers Bhatia and Saini.
We deeply regret to inform you that Pal Singh has been convicted of all charges against him, namely, under the Arms Act, the Explosives Act and the Unlawful Activities Act.
You may recall that Pal Singh is an elderly French National, who is held in high regard by Sikhs the world over. Since he was arrested and falsely charged in 2010, he has suffered the most unbearable levels of torture. Recently, he had to undergo an operation for a form of cancer on a wound that had been inflicted during this torture by police. It is also worth noting, Bhai Pal Singh’s driver and friend, Kulwant Singh, was set alight and killed in his prison cell, under highly suspicious circumstances, on the evening before he was due to give evidence against his torturers, in a court of law. There are two other cases pending against Pal Singh – one in Hoshiarpur and one in Ropar.
Bhai Gurmukh Singh was found guilty under the Arms Act and Unlawful Activities Act and Bhai Makhan Singh has been convicted under the Unlawful Activities Act.
The Judge will announce the sentences for all three Singh’s, on Thursday 19th December. We urge you to pray for the well being of these Gursikhs, who have today, been served a grave injustice.
(Now chances are politics will play it’s rule and the Judge will read the guided judgement given by politicians as the judgement was not delivered in Court on same day).
