CHANDIGARH, Punjab—Political Sikh prisoner Bhai Shabeg Singh has been released from Patiala jail today. He was serving a life sentence in a case registered under FIR No. 22/95 on 13-02-1995 under sections 302,380,392 and 120-B of Indian Penal Code in the police station of East Chandigarh.
In another case registered in the Police station of Sector-34, he was acquitted by the Court.
His release could become possible after 25 years of imprisonment which is a quite keen long period.
It is noteworthy here that the Sikh Relief was fighting a legal battle for the permanent release of Bhai Shabeg Singh and Bhai Nand Singh since 2014. In October this year, the government side had told the court that the government was releasing Bhai Nand Singh and Shabeg Singh without opposing the Sikh Relief’s petition.
Bhai Parminder Singh Amloh along with Jaswinder Singh Anandpur and Advocate Bibi Kulwinder Kaur received Bhai Shabeg Singh outside the jail on his release this evening.
