JALANDHAR: North American Punjabi Association (NAPA) took a serious note of threats to NRI families of Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa who is on hunger strike unto death and is demanding the release of Sikh Prisoners who have already completed their Sentence in different jails throughout the country.

 

Dalwinder Singh Dhoot Chairman of the Association said that as per the information received in our office Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa is facing various hardships and his NRI family members are being threatened by the police which had evoked anger among the Sikh Diaspora. Dhoot said that this is very unfortunate that police has made it extremely difficult for them to carry on their day to to day activities there. On the top of this these NRI family members of Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa are being being harassed and pressed to end his hunger strike. When he was arrested, his dastar was removed on the way to the hospital. He also fell down and was not given any medical attention.


Police also confiscated his phones and other belongings forcibly. This is purely a murder of democracy when a peaceful demonstrator and his family is being harassed at the end of Punjab Police. NAPA seek immediate release of Sikh prisoners from different jails of the country who had completed their Jail sentence
