Dilbagh Singh, now in his fifties, was named in a false case registered againsthim by Punjab police in 1992. This was at a time when State brutality against Sikhs, often ended in the murder of an innocent at the hands of the police. Eventually, in 1999 the Police caught and arrested Dilbagh Singh and his case was later tried in a secret TADA Court, behind closed doors, when he was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment in 2007.

Dilbagh Singh has faced a lifetime of oppression with great inner strength. The police looted his family home, taking anything of value, while other sentimental articles were removed and set on fire. As if that wasn’t enough, before they were done, the police completely demolished the family home in order that no sign of Dilbagh Singh should remain in his ancestral village.


Sikh Relief (SOPW) have been fighting Dilbagh Singh’s case and providing for his welfare. Our team of lawyers managed to secure his first parole release in 2008. Since then, he has returned home for a period of 28 days every six months. Meanwhile, SOPW’s lawyers have filed an application for his premature release in the High Courts. 

Dilbagh Singh is a prisoner in Nabha Maximum Security Jail, which falls under the jurisdiction of the Punjab State Government. The question we ask the Punjab Government is - why are no efforts being made to release those Sikh political prisoners who fall under their own authority? Seeking agreement from other States and negotiating the release of prisoners held outside of Punjab, is a more complicated and time-consuming issue, yet Dilbagh Singh and others in his same position, could walk free tomorrow....
