CHANDIGARH, Punjab—A former Sikh militant named Daljit Singh Dulewal has leveled sensational allegations on Dal Khalsa’s patron Daljit Singh Bittu of procuring property with the money looted from banks during militancy era. He has alleged that Daljit Singh Bittu purchased agriculture land near Ropar by using some amount from the INR 57 million looted from a bank in Ludhiana in February-1987.
In an interview with Akaal Channel’s host Harpreet Singh Makhu, Daljit Singh Dulewal has also accused Daljit Singh Bittu of intentionally fulfilling government’s aspirations by boycotting 1992’s assembly elections. “The militant leaders used to consider Daljit Singh Bittu as their policy maker, but he betrayed Sikhs,” he said.
Dulewal revealed that Daljit Singh Bittu told them that he was going to Afghanistan for procuring weapons, but actually he moved to his farm in Ropar.
It is noteworthy here that the Congress party had registered victory in 1992’s unilateral elections and Beant ‘Singh’ became chief minister of Punjab. After these elections, Beant ‘Singh’ allowed Punjab DGP KPS Gill to tackle militancy in his own way after which the Punjab police killed thousands of innocent Sikh youths.
During that era, the cops were used to be given promotions on the basis of number of Sikh youths killed by them.
In September-1995, renowned human rights activist Jaswant Singh Khalra was also abducted and killed following prolonged brutal physical torture by the Punjab police.

Irresponsible behavior of Sikh24 for posting this type of story where there is no evidence. Everyone knows the truth about this farm and it was never a Daljit Singh’s property. How the media can put a story without verifying info. It is disservice to the Panth to create sensational news item that has no basis.
Moreover, it shows that Sikh24 believes in it that’s why carrying someone else’s story.
Not surprising but still no lessons learned. Many Sikh youths still in jails for petty offenses such as possessing the religious books or materials. About 200 or so under charges of propagating so called 2020 referendum. While their masters still continue to incite youth through social media and tv channels abroad. Once arrested the youth mostly from poor families are in their own.
