Prime Witness In Tytler’s Role in 1984 Sikh Genocide, Jasbir Singh Arrested For Attack on DSGMC Chief GK
New York (Sept, 2018)
California’s Sutter County Sherriff’s office on Sept 12 arrested Jasbir Singh and his son Gagandeep Singh for an alleged attack on DSGMC chief Manjit GK during his August visit to Yuba City Gurdwara.
Jasbir Singh, who is closely associated with Referendum 2020 Campaign, is the prime witness against former Congress MP Jagdish Tytler’s role in leading death squads during 1984 Sikh genocidal violence after the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
Both father and son duo are residents of California and are charged with the offense of “assault” under section 245(a)(4) of California’s Penal Code. The alleged perpetrators of attack on Manjit GK have been granted bail of $20,000/ each and have been ordered to appear on Oct 15th before the trial court in Sutter County.
California’s Penal Code defines the offense of assault as anyone who commits an attack upon the person of another by any means of force likely to produce great bodily injury. Under California’s law, assault is “punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years, or in a county jail for not exceeding one year, or by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both the fine and imprisonment”.
“Indian Consulate in San Francisco tried to influence the outcome of Jasbir Singh’s bail by sending communiqué to the Yuba City police department of some frivolous charges with claims that Jasbir is wanted in India in criminal cases”, stated attorney Gurpatwant Singh Pannun.
“We will object to US Department of State about Indian Consulates interference in United States local judicial matters and will ask Sec. Pompeo to order expulsion of those consular who violated the US laws” added attorney Pannun.
SFJ has also filed a complaint to Kirstjen M. Nielsen, Secretary Department of Homeland Security urging that visa of Manjit Singh GK, head of Delhi wing of SAD-Badal should be revoked for “engaging in political propaganda on behalf of a foreign principal without registering as required under “Foreign Agents Registration Act” (22 USC Section 611(c)).
