Speaking with Sikh24, Advocate Simranjit Singh (ilegal counsel of Bhai Jagtar Singh Tara) informed that Bhai Jagtar Singh Tara was taken to the hospital in sector 32 with the permission of Union Territory’s Home Secretary.

He further informed that due to imposition of section 268 of Cr.P.C (Code of Criminal Procedure) on Bhai Jagtar Singh Tara, the Burail jail authorities can’t permit him to go outside without the permission of UT’s Home Secretary. “The Home Secretary of Union Territory had permitted Burail Jail authorities to complete MRI within an hour” he added.

At the time of writing of this story, test results are still being awaited.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. In many cases, MRI gives different information about structures in the body than can be seen with an X-ray, ultrasound, or computed tomography (CT) scan.


  1. Beanta was killed in 1995 & Dilawer Singh who punished him for the mean deeds sacrificed his life, why other sikhs are being tortured after 22 years & why some communal persons doesn’t want to tolerate even medical treatment to the sikhs & give their judgment before the court decides. Why these people are spreading hate between two communities?

  2. Bhai Jagtar Singh Tara is heera & hero of our Kaum, we salute him, he helped to remove the unwanted weight from the earth who was killer of thousands of Sikhs. He doesn’t had any personal animity with beanta, he did everything for the kaum & humanity, so that killer of innocents should think before doing such mean deeds.
