Police Claim Sikh Youth Committed Suicide

Sikh youth commits suicide in support of Rajoana?

A Sikh youth allegedly committed suicide apparently in support of Babbar Khalsa militant Balwant Singh Rajoana, a claim denied by police.

The deceased had been identified as Ranjit Singh Chaudhary of Ghula Cheeka town in neighbouring Haryana.

Police found a suicide note from the site where the body was recovered. The note allegedly said that he gave his life by hanging himself in the Tafajalpura locality near local bus stand last night and that he was part of a 21-member group formed to save Rajoana. Police also recovered some posters form the site, sources said.

Patiala SSP Gurpreet Singh Gill, however, denied that the youth committed suicide in support of clemency to Rajoana and said that though they had recovered the suicide note from the site, Chaudhary had been under depression for quite some time.
