    Black listed Sikh acquitted by court


    Fatehgarh Sahib (Punjab),

    Jun 4 (PTI)
    A court here today acquitted a Sikh, whose name figured in the black list maintained by the centre for alleged anti-national activities during the dark days of terrorism in Punjab.

    Forty-year-old Sukhwinder Singh alias Sukhi Sumundari was aquitted by court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate here.

    Sukhi?s counsel told reporters outside the court premises that the court acquitted Sukhi as the prosecution had failed to prove charges against him.

    After his acquittal, Sukhi told reporters that the truth has prevailed at last.

    Sukhi said various cases were registered against him at different police stations of Fatehgarh Sahib, SAS Nagar and Rupnagar districts in 1987 when he was only 16-year old.

    From January, 1988 to July 1989 he was lodged in Patiala and Burail Jail at Chandigarh and was later released on bail.
