    LUDHIANA: A delegation led by Surjit Singh, president of Danga Pirit Welfare Association submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner to speed up the procedure of issuing red cards for the 1984 anti-Sikh riot victims.

    The memorandum was sighted as a retaliatory move by Surjit Singh, president of the Danga Pirit Welfare Association as the 1984 Sikh Qatl-e-Aam Peerit Action Committee led by Charanjit Singh met the Punjab Governor Shivraj Patil and demanded CBI probe in the fake riot victim cases.

    Surjit Singh alleged that 300 cards were still to be given away, even as last date was almost here. He further added that the financial assistance would arrive only after the cards were issued.

    Meanwhile, the district administration has asked 247 riot victims to complete the formalities so that red cards could be issued to them.

    Deputy Commissioner Rahul Tiwari said that the cases of riot victims, which were put on hold, could not produce satisfactory documents to stake their claim on red card and registered post has been sent and intimated them to complete the formalities.

    The precautionary measures were taken in the wake of boiling controversy of sham cases of riot victims.

    According to vigilance officials, anti-social elements and department employees were receiving benefits meant for the riot victims

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
