Shaheed Bhai Jaspal Singh
18 years old Engineering College Student, Bhai Jaspal Singh killed by bullet of Punjab Police

Father of deceased Sikh youth names Sub inspector Joginder Singh as killer

Gurdaspur, Punjab: On March 30, 2012, a day after the killing of a Sikh youth, Jaspal Singh in police firing; the Gurdaspur city continued to remain tense on Friday and also under curfew. The curfew however was relaxed for two hours from 4.30 pm to 6.30 pm for the convenience of the residents.

As per certain media reports the administration suspended Naib Tehsildar J. P. Salwan who was the duty magistrate when the firing took place on Thursday. As per eye witnesses and video records available on YouTube the police fired and chased the Sikh youth, who were protesting against provocative activities of Shiv sena activists.

As per reports Shiv Sena activists, in Gurdaspur, attacked and injured four Sikhs during March 28, 2012 Punjab bandh called by Sikh to protest against hanging of Sikh political prisoner Balwant Singh Rajoana, and case was registered against Shiv Sena activists. Though no arrest was made by police, the Shiv sena was demanding quashing of FIR and called for Gurdaspur bandh on March 29. Sikhs were demanding arrest of Shiv sena activists who attacked Sikhs on March 28. This situation led to intervention of Police which brutally attacked on Sikhs. Police direct firing resulted in death of one Sikh body, while other was seriously injured.

Deceased Jaspal Singh was a student of Beant Engg. College, Gurdaspur.

As per reports, in a complaint to the police, Gurcharanjit Singh father of the deceased has alleged that assistant sub-inspector Joginder Singh had allegedly shot dead his son. But the police has registered a case under section 302 Indian penal code (IPC) “against unknown persons” after death of innocent Sikh youth. No arrest has been made yet.

An indefinite curfew was clamped in the district headquarter town after the firing.

Though the Government has ordered a magisterial inquiry to be conducted by Gurdaspur SDM Tejinderpal Singh Sandhu into the incident of firing by the police and the SDM has been asked to submit his report within a month, but the previous records of inquiring in similar cases show that such enquiries seldom end in some logical conclusions.

  1. They will not give us Khalistan.  They will not give us our rights to freedom of religion.  They will not give us our river waters back.  They will not give us our numbers in the military back.  They will not give us Chandigarh as the capital city of Panjab (and not Panjab plus Haryana).  They will not give our farmers higher prices for their yield.  They will not give us a Sikh Marriage Act.  They will not GIVE us anything veer ji.  We must take it.  We must assert our rights.  We must give Truth a chance to prevail.  We used to be a community that ACTED to enact justice instead of sitting idly by and asking for mercy.  Each member of the Panth must ask himself or herself what he or she has done to restore the dastaar that has been knocked off the Panth’s head.  What have you done today?

    Punjab or outside Punjab, police bullets only hit Sikhs or other minorities – here too despite Shiv Sena provocation and agression.
