Updates on Bhai Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa – FIR Registered Against Unidentified Policemen

Kurukshetra: A day after Sikh activist Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa jumped to death at his native village Thaska Ali, the police on Wednesday registered an abetment-to-suicide case against unidentified police personnel.
On Tuesday afternoon, Khalsa started a dharna demanding release of Sikhs who have completed their jail sentence. Later, he climbed a 80-ft water tank in protest.

Khalsa’s son, Jhujhar Singh, told The Tribune that after sunset, a team of policemen climbed the tank to force his father to come down.
“My father kept on warning the policemen to stay away as he was holding a peaceful dharna. He asked them to hold a discussion on Wednesday morning. But the policemen were adamant on bringing him down. As they approached him, my father jumped off the tank to avoid harassment,” Jhujhar said.
Jhujhar denied the charge of Khalsa carrying petrol with him atop the water tank. “My father did not have any life-threatening material. He did not intend to commit suicide. A careless police action drove him to death. I want strict action against policemen who dealt with the situation casually,” he added.
