    AMRITSAR SAHIB, PUNJAB - The senior medical officer for Guru Nanak Dev (GND) Hospital, Amritsar released an incriminating medical report on Punjab Police detainee Kulwant Singh, who has suffered life threatening injuries while being brutally tortured in Police custody earlier this month.

    The medical report was directed to the Court of Civil Judge Bagicha Singh, JMIC Amritsar, and indicated that Kulwant Singh’s condition continued to be critical and was currently being treated in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

    The report stated that Kulwant Singh was suffering from kidney failure, respiratory problems, and had swelling of the face, eyes, and legs. The report also cited factures on his legs and feet – clear evidence that the patient was a victim of torture.

    Earlier this month, the human rights organization Lawyers for Human Rights International (LFHRI), had filed a petition in the Punjab and Haryana High Court on behalf of the tortured Sikh youth.

    LFHRI lawyer Navkiran Singh has demanded criminal action against the Punjab Police officers guilty of torturing Kulwant Singh.

    In a previous press statement, GND Hospital physician, Dr. Saurabh Dhanda had acknowledged that Kulwant Singh has received electric shock injuries to his ears and private parts, and his abdomen also had injuries with indications of “severe beating with batons.”

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!
