Punjab Police Thrashes Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa’s Son With Metal Chains; Imposes Curfew in Ludhiana

LUDHIANA, Punjab—After imposing a curfew in Ludhiana for two months to crush the growing movement for the rights of Sikh political prisoners, the Ludhiana Police also thrashed the US citizen son of Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa earlier today before his court hearing.  Sikh24 has learned that that Ravinder Jeet Singh Gogi was beaten with his metal handcuffs before he was to be presented in the court.

Additional Sub-Inspector (ASI) Richard Maseeh of Ludhaina Police who has a track record of torturing jail in-mates was responsible for beating up Ravinder Jeet Singh Gogi just hours before his appearance in Ludhiana court.  Ravinder Jeet Singh Gogi is a USA citizen who has been fabricated into some cases and has been detained in police custody since February 26. 

Ravinder Jeet Singh Gogi’s lawyer Gurjinder Singh Sahni has filed a complaint against the police and has requested a complete medical check-up.  He stated that bruises were seen on the neck and back of Ravinder Jeet Singh.  He labelled the incident as a pre-planned activity of the police.

“The ASI was smoking cigarettes too close to Ravinder Singh.  He was asked to not smoke in such close proximity and it is also against the law to smoke in public places,” said Sahni.  After this incident, Ravinder Jeet Singh was taken to a private room, where he was beaten up badly.

In addition to the beating of Ravinder Jeet Singh Gogi, a journalist was also thrashed.  A video has surfaced online in which ASI Richard Maseeh is questioning the journalist why he is taking pictures of Ravinder Jeet Singh. The video is available at this link.

This past weekend, a curfew was imposed in Ludhiana for next months, banning any gathering of 5 or additional people.

Next court hearing of Ravinder Jeet Singh is scheduled for April 17.
