In November 2012 a TADA (Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act) court convicted 93 year old Dr Assa Singh and sentenced him to undergo 10 years of imprisonment. It is worth noting that TADA ceased to be operative in 1995 due to worldwide condemnation of its misuse. But even 17 years after TADA expired, Assa Singh along with 11 others, were all given harsh sentences in a decision that was widely considered to be political rather than judicial. Sikh Relief have provided support to those involved in this case, who have requested our help.

Dr Assa Singh could barely walk without support, as he stood on trial accused of a 25 year old bank robbery case in which he allegedly handled the stolen money from a Ludhiana branch of Punjab National Bank in February 1987. The case was full of flaws and lacked any evidence which was conveniently overlooked by Judge Sunil Kumar Arora.

In June 2013, Assa was injured following a brutal attack by fellow inmates, and had to be hospitalised. Given parole later, he remained bed-ridden for two months at home. Finally, when he showed signs of mental disturbance, the Supreme Court granted him bail. Singh remains on bail since.
