After Fake Encounters, What Punjab Police did with dead bodies of Punjab Youths

Sri Darbar Sahib head granthi Giani Jagtar Singh Tuesday released a book on former Punjab police chief KPS Gill at Akal Takht in Amritsar on Tuesday. Titled ‘The Butcher of Punjab – KPS Gill’, the book is authored by Sarabjit Singh Ghuman, 48, the editor of Punjabi magazine ‘Fathenama’. Ghuman, said, “I was tortured for 31 days by Ludhiana police. Who could write better on a police officer than me.” Paramjit Kaur Khalra, wife of Human Rights Activist Jaswant Singh Khalra, who was killed in a fake encounter during Gill’s tenure, was presented the first copy of the book.“Khalra was a government employee and had raised the issue of unidentified bodies that were cremated by police in Punjab. He apprehended that he might be killed. If a learned person like Khalra couldn’t escape getting killed, you can imagine what would have happened to others,” said Ghuman.
