Sikh shot in Pakistan dies after a month – relatives block road


Jalandhar, April 7 (YP Bureau)

A Sikh, who was shot at and injured by unknown people, died at Nankana Sahib after one month on Friday.
Pakistan‘s reputed Daily ‘The International News’ reporting from Nankana Sahib said Mahandir Singh, father of three children, was seriously injured by the firing of unidentified people a month ago. After his death, hundreds of his relatives staged a demonstration and blocked Sheikhupura-Faisalabad Road by burning tyres for four hours.


After getting information, DPO Syed Ashfaq reached the spot and held talks with the protesters who continued their protest. They chanted slogans against the police and pelted buses with stones.
Sheikhupura RPO Zulfiqar Cheema also held talks with the protesters, which remained unsuccessful. Later, the district administration called MPA Rai Shahjahan Bhatti and it was only on his assurance that the Sikhs dispersed.
Later, they also staged a demonstration outside Gurdwara Janamasthan. Talking to journalists, Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee former presidents Sardar Mistan Singh, Sardar Bisham Singh, Dayal Singh, Nadan Singh and Ujagar Singh said that it was sheer negligence of the district police that could not arrest the accused even after one month. They said that they would protest outside the Punjab Assembly if the killers were not arrested in four days. Later, they performed the last rituals of the deceased.
