Shamsher Singh is one of fourteen life serving convicts that have been at the heart of the Bapu Surat SIngh hunger strike awareness campaign for the release of those sikh political prisoners that have served their minimum term sentences, have no outstanding cases and therefore qualify for premature relaese.

Shamsher Singh was sentenced to life imprisonment in August 1995 for his alleged involvement in the Chief Minister Beant Singh assassination case. He was sentenced under section 302 (punishment for murder) and 307 (attempt to murder) alongside 120-B (Punishment of criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code and U/S 3 & 4 of the Explosive Substances Act. He has no other cases pending and to date, has been awarded a total of three parole release during his 20 years of incarceration. 

Sikh Relief, has supported Shamsher Singh and his family for many years, support comes in the form of a monthly family maintance allowance, funding education costs for his daughter, paying for his daughters wedding, medical and any other form of financial support should the need arise and legal welfare and aid for Shamsher Singh himself.
