Accompanied by family members, relatives and leaders of various Sikh organisations, the detainees paid obeisance at Amb Sahib Gurdwara before returning to the jail.

“Now, we want that the SAD government and those who had promised to secure our release should keep their word,” said Lakhwinder.

Lakhwinder’s father Darshan Singh, his sisters Sukhwinder Kaur and Paramjit Kaur and their husbands had come from Ludhiana to see him off.

Shamsher was accompanied by his wife Baljinder Kaur, son Onkar Singh, brother Bhagwant Singh and sister Charanjit Kaur.

Lakhwinder said he had stayed at his sister’s home in Ludhiana for most of the period. “I only went to the Golden Temple and my village Narangwal when I was out on parole,” he said. Shamsher said he visited the Golden Temple and mostly remained at his residence in Usski Jattan near Rajpura. “I spent Lohri with my family after a gap of about 19 years,” said Shamsher. Gurmeet Singh, another convict, had returned on Thursday.
