Bhai Mohkam Singh out after 17 days in Jail


Amritsar, Apr 14 (YP Bureau)

Damdami Taksal Spokesman and Convener of Khalsa Action Committee, Bhai Mohkam Singh , after spending 17 days behind bars today walked free alongwith his aide and co-accused Bhai Balwant Singh Gopala after the Punjab and Haryana High Court granted him bail yesterday.


Both Bhai Mohkam Singh and Bhai Balwant Singh Gopala were taken into preventive custody on March 29, a day after Punjab observed a bandh against the death sentence awarded to Babbar Khalsa militant Balwant Singh Rajoana.


Speaking after the release of Bhai Mohkam Singh, Kanwar Pal Singh, a spokesman of the Dal Khalsa slammed the Punjab government for not releasing these detainees despite repeated calls by the Akal Takht's Jathedar in this regard. He accused the Akali Dal government in the state of detaining Sikh leaders for mere political reasons.
