Missing hosteller: Pbi varsity officials clueless

Tribune News Service

Patiala, September 9

A delegation of students of Punjabi University, Patiala met vice-chancellor Jaspal Singh today regarding the mysterious disappearance of a PhD student in the linguistics department, Sewak Singh, four days ago and urged him to immediately get in touch with the police to ascertain his whereabouts.

The students told the vice-chancellor that on September 4 at midnight the police asked Sewak, who is also sub-editor at a Punjabi monthly magazine, to accompany them to the Homi Bhabha hostel in the varsity campus to search room number 29A, which had been allotted to him.

Talking to The Tribune, the students stated on the night of the incident about 20 cops of the Ludhiana police accompanied by a Patiala DSP brought Sewak, who hails from Bajewala village in Mansa district, to the hostel and searched his room, reportedly in the presence of warden Rajinder Singh. The cops then took away Sewak along with them along with his thesis papers and a few CDs. The students said the cops, who made enquiries about Sewak from fellow students, had said he was a “very dangerous man”.

One of the students said, “What’s strange is that the warden didn’t bother to find out why the cops were there and what they were searching for. The warden didn’t even object when the cops later took away Sewak without giving any reason”.

When contacted Rajinder refused to comment on the matter and asked this reporter to talk to dean of students welfare Kulbir Singh Dhillon.

Dhillon admitted the policemen had searched Sewak’s room and later took him away with them. He claimed the search was conducted with Sewak’s consent “so we didn’t object to it”.

Sewak’s family members and friends have no clue about his whereabouts. His brother, Gurwinder Singh, told The Tribune though he had contacted the Mansa police DGP and also got in touch with the hostel warden as well as human rights bodies on the incident it was of no avail.

He said the Mansa police had told him it did not have any information about Sewak and would contact the Ludhiana police to try to get some details.

The incident has created panic among hostel students in the university campus. “It’s strange though the student has been missing for the past four days the authorities don’t appear to be bothered about his safety. This kind of thing can also happen to any of us”, said some hostellers.

The varsity’s chief security officer, when contacted, said it was “not his job to keep track of all students”, adding he had no clue as to what had happened to the missing student.

The vice chancellor, on the other hand, assured university students that the authorities would “take every possible step to ensure Sewak Singh’s safety and efforts were on to locate him”.

I just hope he does not end up like Shaheed Bhai Jaswant Singh Khalra. We should all pray for his safety and Chardikala. Please take the time to mention this Singh in your Ardas. Guru Sahib Kirpa karn.

In all probabality he will not because these people are not even a shade of Jaswant singh Khalra. Bittu has a lot of skeeltons in his closet such as his links with police cat Sukhi who is alive though declared dead in police records.
