Warayam Singh has been confined in Central Jail Bareilly since May 1990. Warayam SIngh and his family members, Wassan SIngh and Major SIngh (who was 14 years old at the time) were all arrested and taken to a police station in Bareilly U.P where they were interrogated, severely tortured then thrown into Bareilly prison. 

They were tried and sentenced to life imprisonment under the draconian TADA act. Wassan Singh was arrested at the age of 90 and sadly he never returned home as he died in prison aged 97 after contracting TB.

Warayam Singh's entire family have all also sacrificed hugely for the Panth, his uncle Gurmej Singh (85) was first arrested in 1979 he was beaten tortured for ten days before being released; he was then rearrested May 1990 and imprisoned till 1996. Nephew Major SIngh Singh (14) was confined in Central Jail Bareilly for 23 years before being granted permanent release in August 2012.  Uncle, Ajit Singh arrested in 2008; spent six months in jail, he is currently on bail, the trial is on-going. Uncle, Balbinder Singh arrested at the age of 32 in May 1990, he endured ten days of police torture whilst in custody only then to be released and killed in a false police encounter in 1993.

Due to the harsh conditions in prison, Varyam Singh’s health has deteriorated and he has lost the sight in one eye. Yet, despite his impeccable behaviour and good conduct in jail, Varyaam Singh has never been granted even a single days parole since his arrest 25 years ago. Understandably, the family struggle to see the light at the end of the tunnel....

Sikh Relief’s legal team have completed all the necessary paperwork for his premature release, and he was finally released in October 2015, he is now happily back at home with his family and Sikh Relief will continue to work with him via our rehabilitation and self sufficiency program.
