In 2009 Sukhjinder Kaur was newly married to Balbir Singh and the happy couple were travelling back from Hazoor Sahib when they were involved in a police shootout at Ludhiana Railway station. Both of them were placed under arrest and charged under the Arms Act and the Unlawful Activities Act. It has taken five years to finally clear Sukhjinder Kaur's name. Yesterday, in the Ludhiana Sessions court of Judge Sarbjit Singh Dhaliwal, Sukhjinder Kaur was fully acquitted in the case and her husband, Balbir Singh 'Bhootna's sentence, was converted from life under the Unlawful Activities Act, to a normal life sentence. 

This means that Balbir Singh can now hope to be freed sooner. Jaspal Singh Manjhpur and Gurmit Singh Rattu were the advocates representing the couple in court. Balbir Singh Bhootna remains behind bars in Nabha Jail as he has been framed in 9 cases overall and Sikh Relief will continue the fight for his freedom. Our team was there to honour Sukhjinder Kaur's sacrifice to the panth, as she took her first steps of freedom.

IN TODAY'S INDIA, ANOTHER INNOCENT WOMAN HAS BEEN ROBBED OF VALUABLE YEARS OF HER YOUNG LIFE, FORCED TO ENDURE THE TORTURES OF JAIL, LABELLED AS AN ANTI-NATIONAL AND LEFT WITH LIFE-LONG PHYSICAL & EMOTIONAL SCARS. WHO WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CRIME COMMITTED AGAINST SUKHJINDER KAUR?
