Punish culprits of Kanpur Sikh genocide: SGPC

Amritsar, July 23

Welcoming the special investigation team’s (SIT) move to collect the evidence after reopening the files pertaining to the cases of Kanpur Sikh genocide in November 1984, SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur today demanded that the accused be strictly punished.

In November 1984, Sikhs were massacred in Delhi, Kanpur, Bokaro and other cities. “Although with the convictions and punishments to some accused, there is a glimmer of hope, but even after 37 years, all the accused have not been put behind bars. Now that action is being taken against the culprits of the Kanpur Sikh genocide, we hope the culprits are punished soon,” she said.

The SGPC had continuously worked to get the culprits of the genocide punished but they had been escaping the law with the patronage of the Congress, she alleged. — TNS
