Mohali police drops sedition charges against Sikh youth Bhai Ramandeep Singh Sunny

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—At last, the Mohali police have dropped sedition charges against Bathinda based Sikh youth Ramandeep Singh alias Sunny. The move has come following more than two and half month long hunger strike by Ramandeep Singh in Bathinda jail.

Sharing the development with media, Bhai Ramandeep Singh Sunny’s legal counsel Harpal Singh Khara informed that the Mohali police indicted Bhai Ramandeep Singh under sedition charges on November 25 last year but now the police have dropped these charges against him after more than two months long peaceful struggle. “Bhai Ramandeep Singh has ended his hunger strike after being shown the legal papers,” he added.  

Bhai Ramandeep Singh’s wife Bibi Sukhpreet Kaur was also present on this occasion.

It may be recalled here that the physical condition of Sikh prisoner Bhai Ramandeep Singh aka Sunny had worsened on February 3 due to more than two and half month long hunger strike. The Bathinda jail authorities had immediately taken him to the Civil Hospital where Sunny had refused to take any medical aid until unless the fake cases against are not dropped. However, his legal counsel Harpal Singh Khara succeeded in convincing him to take medical aid by reminding him of his family.
