Balwinder’s wife seeks paramilitary security

Tarn Taran, December 8

A day after the special cell of the Delhi Police nabbed two prime suspects allegedly involved in the murder of Shaurya Chakra awardee Balwinder Singh, along with alleged ultras from Kashmir, his wife Jagdish Kaur said their claims stood true that his killing was an act of terrorism.

The family now urged the state and the Centre for security from paramilitary, alleging that the terrorists could harm their family. At present, they’ve been provided home guard jawans for security.

The special cell of the Delhi Police nabbed Sukhdeep Singh, alias Bura, of Kharal, and Gurjit Singh Bhaa of Lakhanpal (both villages of Gurdaspur district), along with three alleged militants from Kashmir. The special cell clearly called the shooters of Balwinder as militants having links with further foreign militants.

Besides, Balwinder, his wife Jagdish Kaur, brother-in-law and his wife were also honoured with the Shaurya Chakra by the President for their fight against the militancy during the heydays of terrorism in Punjab.

Ever since the murder (of her husband), the police had been repeatedly calling it an outcome of personal enmity and we had been saying that it was a terrorist act, she said. The police questioned her sons Ganagdeep Singh and Arashdeep Singh many times, causing harassment to them, she alleged.

Dhruman H Nimbale, SSP, said the police probed the case in a scientific and transparent manner. “We are trying to contact the Delhi Police for seeking details of the probe and the basis of their findings. The Delhi Police were calling the shooters of Balwinder terrorists.” — OC
