NEW DELHI, India— The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee’s tireless efforts today bore fruit when its team of lawyers succeeded in securing bail for 18 farmers arrested by the Delhi police about January 26’s incident. These 18 farmers were facing severe criminal charges, like an attempt to murder and robbery, after being indicted in three false FIRs registered in Alipur and Nangloi police stations.
Sharing the development with the media, DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa informed that the Delhi police had falsely imposed severe criminal charges on these farmers so that their release could be delayed for a long time. “With the grace of the Almighty Lord, our lawyers have succeeded in securing bail for them,” he added.
He extended a vote of thanks to the team of lawyers comprising Jagdeep Singh Kahlon, Harmeet Singh Kalka, Rakesh Chahal, Jaspreet Rai, Jaspreet Dhillon, Parteek Kohli, Sankalp Kohli, Advocate Kapil Maidaan, Gurmukh Singh, Jasvir Singh, Arshpreet Singh, and Neelam Singh. They are working day and night for the release of arrested farmers.
Sirsa expressed hope that the legal team of DSGMC will succeed in getting released all the arrested farmers by the end of next week. “I assure the families of these arrested farmers that we’ll continue our legal fight till acquittal of all these farmers,” he added.
To date, the DSGMC’s legal team has secured bails for more than 50 arrested farmers, and most of them have been released after filling of surety bonds.
