Few people will have heard of Baaz Singh, a man who has been robbed of his youth and left a ‘bag of bones’ by the hardships of prison life. In 1993, the police registered a number of false cases against Baaz Singh and sent him to Amritsar Central Jail. Within months, Ropar Police also took custody of Baaz Singh; trying to frame him in yet another case. Baaz Singh’s family were left distraught when Ropar Police sent an untrue message to them, saying he had escaped from their custody and died when he fell into a river.

In 2000, Baaz Singh was sentenced to life imprisonment by a Faridkot Court and has remained in Amritsar Central Jail for over 20 years. The only thing still keeping him there is the fact that his paperwork for release, filed in the High Court by our legal team, has not been processed any further by the judicial 'system'. The mental anguish of each day behind bars being another day of freedom taken away, is etched all over Baaz Singh’s face, yet, Amritsar Jail falls under the authority of the Punjab Government. If they wished to do so, Badal's government has the power to end the anguish of Baaz Singh and others like him, who unjustly remain behind bars.

Baaz Singh is of impeccable character which has earned him so much respect in prison, that he has been appointed the barrack gatekeeper for the last 13 years. His good conduct also means he has been granted parole on over 20 occasions. Baaz Singh yearns to return home to his wife, elderly mother and children. Sikh Relief (SOPW) have been working hard on Baaz Singh’s case and we will continue to fight for the freedom of ALL our political prisoners.
