Gurbaaz Singh was first arrested in 2005 and framed in a case related to Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara. He suffered unbearable torture at the hands of the police and to further add to the pain of this Gursikh, there were not one, not two, but five cases registered against him. This is a common tactic used to ensure that an innocent person be caught up in the ‘system’ for the foreseeable future.

SOPW hired a lawyer to fight his case and after serving one year in the maximum security prison in Nahba, Bhai Gurbaaz Singh managed to get bail in 2006. Following on from this, in 2008 he was acquitted in 4 out of the 5 cases registered against him, but was still sentenced for five years in a case under the Arms Act.


During Bhai Sahib’s ordeal in prison over the last 8+ years, SOPW and the Sangat have taken care of his welfare as well as the welfare of his family. Together we ensured that his children’s education did not suffer and their school fees were paid on time, even during their father’s absence.

Without your financial support and the Sangat’s helping hand behind him, Bhai Sahib would almost definitely still be in prison today and he would not be reunited with his family as a free man.
