Kulwant Singh's Body Being Examined at GND Hospital
Kulwant Singh's Body Being Examined at GND Hospital

Amritsar, Punjab - Bhai Kulwant Singh, an inmate at Central Amritsar Jail, passed away today after sustaining severe burns caused by a suspicious fire in his jail cell. He was admitted to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital on Saturday in critical condition after suffering 50% burn injuries and major damage to his vital organs.

Although no details regarding the cause of the fire have been released as authorities and fellow inmates refuse to comment, the jail superintendent, Rashpal Singh, has tried to suggest that the incident was the result of an attempted suicide.

This is not the first time Kulwant Singh has been admitted to the hospital since his incarceration began in July of 2010. He was previously admitted to the same hospital with life threatening injuries as a result of police torture in August of the same year. When he was brought to the hospital the first time, Dr. Saurabh Dhanda said “there were electric shock injuries on his ears and private parts. Kulwant’s stomach also had injuries owing to severe beating with batons.”

Kulwant Singh was one of the individuals linked with Pal Singh of France and picked up by police in a spate of arrests made in the summer of 2010. Pal Singh was picked up from home on July 22 and illegally detained in an undisclosed location until his arrest was declared on July 28 along with the fabricated claim that he was discovered with a huge cache of arms.

Reacting to the news, Canadian Sikh Coalition spokesman, Moninder S. Bual, said the case of Kulwant Singh is alarming as it indicated a continuation of India’s genocidal policy towards the Sikhs. “The story of Kulwant Singh is the same unfortunate story of countless Sikh youth who have suffered at the hands of India’s security forces. His example shamelessly exposes the modus operandi of the Punjab Police, arresting citizens arbitrarily and masking torture and custodial murder in preposterous lies.”

    Innocent victims are suffering in the HANDS of Democratic-dictators those allow such incidents to happen with impunity and 'democide' goes-on unabated.

    So far, the attempts to incarcerate those who film police have failed. However, it remains the responsibility of citizens to become active, form coalitions, engage local police departments, and demand that proper access to video surveillance be granted to allow for citizen oversight. It is equally important to establish a dialogue that informs police to become educated about the laws they are responsible for enforcing.


    Its all due to LACK of EMPATHY of those who are PAID to 'serve and protect' and those democratic-dictators:

    On such horrific cases kindly ensure that you reports to 'international HR/CR groups'.

    Kulwant Singh was a blaitant victim of human rights abuse, he was badly beaten and tortured by police and prison guards whilst in jail over a peroid of time. Last year Kulwant even attended court in a wheel chair because he was tortured so badly and was unable to walk. He was blaitantly set-alight and killed by the officials because his injuries spoke volumes in regards to human rights abuse. Skhs are not safe in India.
