—The detention of 31-year-old Scottish human rights activist Jagtar Singh Johal continues, and will reach 115 days on Monday February 26, 2018.
Having been abducted by the Indian authorities on November 4, 2017, Jagtar has yet to be charged, even though he will be presented at his 30th court appearance on February 24, 2018. In addition to not being charged, no incriminating evidence or recovery has been presented against him to till date.
On February 14, 2018, an Indian judge granted the police an extension of 90 days police remand. Although the Indian authorities have had more than 100 days to present any evidence against Jagtar Singh, nothing has been produced and Indian courts continue to grant extended remand.
A social media event has been organized to raise awareness for Jagtar Singh Johal’s continued detention and 90-days extended police remand.
