Actually, Pakistani MPA Baldev Kumar is a main accused in the murder case of Dr. Soran Singh

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—A statement by a Pakistani Hindu Baldev Kumar claiming unfair treatment with minorities in Pakistan was given an extreme importance by the mainstream Indian media. Citing this unfair treatment, Baldev Kumar had also talked of demanding political asylum from India while interacting with the media in his in-laws’ home situated in Khanna.

As soon as the statement by Baldev Kumar surfaced over various Indian news portals, a 19 year old Pakistani Sikh boy Ajay Singh exposed his reality. He has revealed that Baldev Kumar is the main accused in the murder case of his father Dr. Soran Singh, who was murdered on April 22 in 2016.

Ajay Singh has revealed that Baldev Kumar had waged murder of his father Dr. Soran Singh by giving Rupees One million to five youths for this murder. “Baldev Kumar was held guilty by the trial court and he even remained confined in jail for about two years, but later he was acquitted by an anti-terrorism court,” he informed.

Ajay Singh further informed that his family had taken this case to the Peshawar High Court in June-2018 and the next hearing on this case is due on September 30. “As the case is pending, Baldev fled to India where he is misguiding the people and government to secure asylum. To garner support of the Sikhs in India, he made his appearance as a Sehajdhari Sikh,” he said.

“Baldev Kumar is the killer of my father who served the humanity as a doctor throughout his life. I appeal to the Indian government not to grant him asylum. The Indian government should send him back so that he can be punished for what he did,” he said.

It may be recalled here that PTI MPA Arnab Jahandad had hurled a shoe at Baldev Kumar in protest against the latter’s presence in the assembly in February 2018 when the latter came to take oath.

Pakistan minister of science and technology Fawad Hussain Chaudhry in a Twitter post had said, “Irony is Baldev committed a cold-blooded murder of Soran Singh only because he was next in the line for MPA list. A group of Indians is celebrating what? A criminal only to avoid case in Pak has asked for Political asylum?”. 

Dr. Soran Singh (died 22 April 2016) was a Pakistani Sikh doctor, TV anchor, politician and Minister of Minorities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Before joining Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in 2011, he was a member of Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan for nine years. He was also member of Tehsil council, Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee and Evacuee Trust Property Board. He also hosted the program named “Za Hum Pakistani Yam” for three and a half years with Khyber News.

Dr. Soran Singh was gunned down in a targeted attack near his house on Friday, 22 April 2016. The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police had later arrested Baldev Kumar, who orchestrated Singh’s murder due to political rivalry, and hired paid assassins for the purpose. Kumar belonged to the Hindu community, and wanted to contest elections from the same party on a reserved minority seat. He developed differences with Singh when the latter was picked for the seat. Kumar was acquitted by an anti-terrorism court in 2018 for lack of “solid evidence.”
