Delegation from Delhi meets with Akal Takht Jathedar

Amritsar, Apr 6 (PTI) A delegation of SAD (Delhi) today met Akal Takht 'Jathedar' Gurbachan Singh and sought his intervention in release of Sikh leaders arrested during the Punjab bandh called on March 28 by Akal Takhat Sahib. The delegation, led by general secretaries Hardial Singh Aman and Balwinder Singh Bhullar met Jathedar and asked him to "issue directions to Punjab government to release the Sikh leaders." Jaswinder Singh Baliyewal, youth leader SAD Delhi Gurdip Singh Gosha, Baba Baljeet Singh Daduwal and Daljit Singh Bittu were arrested by Punjab police on "flimsy" ground, they alleged. "To save Balwant Singh Rajoana from gallows was these foremost duty of five Sikh leaders who made the Punjab bandh call successful," Bhullar said. A day-long bandh was called on March 28 by radical Sikh outfits to protest the proposed execution of Balwant Singh Rajoana, convicted in the Beant Singh killing case.
