Jagtar Singh Jaggi’s Police Remain Again Extended for Two Days

AMRITSAR SAHIB, Punjab—Scottish Sikh youth Jagtar Singh alias Jaggi was today once again produced before the Court of Judicial Magistrate Sumit Sabharwal by the police in an FIR No. 218/17 registered in the Police station of Salem Tabri. The FIR pertains to killings of Christian Pastor Sultan Masih in Ludhiana. 

Interestingly, the Ludhiana police sought seven days extension in the Jagtar Singh Jaggi’s remand to recover his Scottish passport despite of the fact that the passport has been submitted to British High Commission in Delhi and the Baghapurana Court was also informed about it.

Judicial Magistrate extended Police remand of Jaggi for two days without paying attention to the contentions of defence lawyer Advocate Jaspal Singh Manjhpur.      

Interacting with media, Advocate Jaspal Singh Manjhpur said that the Magistrate extended police remand of Jaggi without any consideration that Jaggi has not been allowed to meet with the High Commission in private.

Meanwhile, it has come to fore that the Ludhiana police on November 29 broke into the ancestral home of Jagtar Singh Jaggi and damaged household under the garb of search. It is unclear that what the police obtained during this search and what they bring away from Jaggi’s ancestral house.
