BREAKING NEWS: CBI Seeks Death Penalty for Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara


BREAKING NEWS: CBI Seeks Death Penalty for Jathedar Hawara

By: Sikh24 Editors
NEW DELHI (April 3, 2012)–Sikh24 has learned from sources relating to Sikh Organization for Prisoner Welfare that Babbar Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara has been served notice that an appeal has been made by the CBI for the death penalty to be applied in cases filed against him.

Bhai Hawara has been given until April 30th to file a response to the appeal made by the CBI. Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara’s legal team has posed a key question to him and the Sikh Panth, “Why is the same state which is trying to free Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana from [the] death penalty now wanting to hang [Hawara]?”

Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara is currently facing life imprisonment for his involvement in the Beant “Singh” assassination case. The High Court had announced a death sentence for Bhai Hawara, the mastermind behind the assassination plot. According to court orders, Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara played a key role in the assassination. Bhai Hawara had appealed his sentence, after which his death sentence was commuted to life imprisonment.

The Sikh Nation has worked hard to seek a stay on Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana’s execution. A similar fate for Bhai Hawara could mean further harsh days for the community. Details about the CBI orders will be shared with Sikh Sangat in the next few days. Bhai Hawara’s legal team is scheduled to hold a live interview with the Sikh Channel, UK, tomorrow.

Major fraud by the CBI was unearthed by Laywers for Human Rights International (LFHRI) in which they found proof that the CBI had never appointed the prosecution lawyer. LFHRI had made an application to the Punjab and Haryana High Court to dismiss the case and/or conviction in the Beant case against Rajoana and all the other Singhs on the basis that the whole case is tainted by fraud.

Beant “Singh” was responsible for mass genocide of Sikhs in the 1980′s and 90′s and was made accountable for his crimes against humanity by Shaheed Bhai Dilawar Singh Babbar, Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara, Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana and others.
