Nearly 11000 people go missing during the Badal regime: NGO
Sanjay Sharma, TNN | Jan 17, 2012, 07.19PM IST

The startling fact that nearly 11,000 persons have gone missing in the last five years has come out in reply to RTI queries posed by an NGO Citizens for Social Responsibility (CSR) comprising doctors, lawyers, senior citizens and other professionals.

CHANDIGARH:
In the state of Punjab where the rising number of missing persons has alarmed human rights activists, 10869 persons went missing during the last five years of the Parkash Singh Badal regime. During the regime of Amarinder Singh between 2002-2007, 3409 persons went missing as against 2403 persons during the Badal regime between 1997 and 2002.

The startling fact has come out in reply to RTI queries posed by an NGO Citizens for Social Responsibility (CSR) comprising doctors, lawyers, senior citizens and other professionals. The data has been collected after two years of hard work, Dr Baldev Singh from CSR said. The data base created by the NGO is for 15 years.

During 1997 and 2001, the preliminary data has revealed that out of 623 people who went missing during the period, 414 are still not traceable even after a lapse of 10 years.

The record of tracing the missing did not improve even during the Amarinder Singh regime between 2002 and 2007 as out of 884 missing, 490 are yet to be found.

The NGO has said the most frightening is the figure for 2010 and 2011 as reported by SSPs of Bathinda, Amritsar and Hoshiarpur only. In these 3 districts alone, 834 persons went missing during last two years. The final figure of the entire state is yet to be revealed.

Investigations into the missing persons have not yielded any concrete results.

The most surprising is the fact that the persons have gone missing during peace time unlike during the violent days when they could have been victims of violence.

The new organization plans to move courts on the basis of the information it has gathered to trace the missing persons.

The issue had earlier been raised by civil society that had approached different courts but the situation has not improved.

Veer Ji, there are some Sikhs who do deeply care what happens to other Sikhs. However, the Indian government does what ever it take to confuse and mislead Sikhs which can breaks their trust between each other. The internet is helping to bring people together and this is worrying the governments around the world.

I would have never been to exchange ideas and meet like minded people if it wasn't for SPN :happysingh:

BaljinderS veer ji various Governments, their touts and others do watch SPN too and will come charging in to destroy it one day.

Everyone needs to contribute to keep it strong with participation and $$.

We should aim to save the next generation and future of Sikhism.

Sat Sri Akal.
